Re: Female shihan, or more accurately...lack thereof?

Seidokan Aikido is completely independent from the Aikikai and we have recently started using the Shihan, Shihan-dai, Shidoin, and Fukushidoin teaching titles. While we have no female Shihan we do have one female Shihan-dai, and she happens to be one of my instructors

I found out that Mary Heiny Sensei recently promoted two of her senior students to 6th Dan. I added Kimberly Richardson Sensei and Joanne Veneziano Sensei to the list under Independents.
