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 (AikidoAmer@aol.com), still located at 1016 W. Belmont (Tenshinkan Dojo), for more details or visit their website (www.aaa-aikido.com
). 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.
