I don't want anyone to get confused out there by a small part of the above statement about the "new address for the AAA dojo". A group that is not AAA/AAI and has no Toyoda family members has been advertising a Toyoda Shihan Memorial Training on July 4 AND using the Toyoda family crest. They are, of course, free to train as they wish. However, for the sake of clarity, this group is NOT a AAA/AAI dojo in any capacity.

AAA instructors, students and friends are, of course, conducting a Memorial Training for their founder and teacher at Toyoda Sensei's dojo, Ryoshinkan, in Palatine on July 4. Contact AAA Headquarters (, still located at 1016 W. Belmont (Tenshinkan Dojo), for more details or visit their website ( Training is at 9:30 a.m. with a pot luck lunch to follow. See you there.

Other than that, it sure is going to be busy in Chicago...train hard, train well and find peace.
