the World Games--Organisation in Germany appionted Katsuaki Asai Shihan to be the ambassador of Aikido for the World Games 2005.
At November 19th 2004 the Aikikai Germany took part at an ambassadormeeting with VIP's of sports and politics in Duisburg (Germany).
During that meeting the Aikikai Germany also shows an demonstration of Aikido.
The participants were amazed and enthusiastic about this presentation.
I think it is one more step to spread Aikido in the world and it is very important to find more supporters for our martial art at this event next year.
Under the link above you look at a photo of the evening.
