Re: Non-Japanese Shihans?

Re: Non-Japanese Shihans?

I assume the Shihan certification given by the AikiKai Foundation Hombu Dojo Japan.
I assume a certified designated "Shihan" has to be recommendation of a Certified Representative of Hombu Dojo or affiliated Organization the AikiKai Foundation has appointed a Representative in the United States as a example. If the Aiki foundation did not announce these Non- Japanese Shihan designation it could be a outside of Japan posting system. If the Aiki Web, as a starting point could resolve this question. It could help the members of this Aiki Web forum resolve this Shihan question. The Aikikai Foundation will recognize the "Aiki Web" as a point of information to all Aikido students all over the world. And will help to resolve this question or direct you to the individual in charge of the Shihan certification.
