Re: 2009 World Games

Actually, Aikido is also featured in the 2005 World Games in Duisberg, Germany as well. Aikido is listed under the "Invitational Games" section here - http://www.worldgames-iwga.org/vsite...m-item,00.html - so I'm not sure if anyone is actually competing. It's more like a demo I think.

Also, the only "style" of Aikido that is represented across the globe is Aikikai as the participants must be recognised by the International Aikido Federation. So I think this is just another arena that is being used to display Aikido. But it is not actually Aikido competition imho.

Interesting concept though.
