Re: Aikikai Kagami Biraki Promotions?

Hello Jerome,

Yes, Horii Shihan was promoted to 7th dan at this year's kagami biraki. The entire list was published in the Aikido Shimbun and, judging from the photograph on the front page, Horii Shihan received his diploma in person, for he is on the front row watching Doshu's demonstration. The list covers more than 70 lines of Japanese text and there are far too many names to list individually.

Best wishes,

Hi Peter,
Is there a reason there is not a more public presentation of these names via the internet? It would seem to be logical given the international level of participation these days.
