Re: Teaching Aikido - Require Coaching Course?

With respect to Adam's post on this page, I wasn't able to keep up the classes at the Y's, but there was a dojo in another nearby town that people could attend and our colleague did get the fukushidoin certification when it was introduced to our organization. So there would have been close connection with the major dojo if I had applied for consideration, which would have been great, but I wasn't able to train much after the Y classes ended, due to change of job from proofreader to building trades gofer and other time commitments.... But the USAF I believe is strongly committed to developing good teachers and supervising them, with requirements to attend major seminars run by the Technical Committee members...
