Re: Nippon Disaster
Quick update: I was just informed by one of Hollands higher ranking Aikikai officials that some of the major Dutch Aikido organizations are organizing a number of fundraising events with the aid of (amongst others) Peter Goldsbury (who happens to be in Holland right now), Shimizu Sensei of Tendo-ryu, Kobayashi Shihan of Aikikai Hombu and one event in the light of celebrating 50 years of Dutch aikido.
I think far as benefit seminars go, it's hard to top the above by the efforts of little ol' me. So, a sincere thank you to all those envolved and to my aikido friends who where kind enough to keep me in the loop. I'm curious whether similar aikido related events are taking place in other countries. Let's hope so.
