Re: Are Aikido Organizations Relevant?
I seem to remember the CAF had a substantial insurance policy for all member dojos - more than one dojo might be able to afford on their own. Also a national website and advertising, summer camps, and support for a Shihan. Large advantage for a beginning dojo, or for those teachers less savvy with computers, contracts, etc. besides, the teacher who gave up most of his life to be a teacher for Canada, he did need sponsors for immigration and so on.
