The 2007 Aikido Humanitarian Active Network Irish Seminar will be held on Sat 20th & Sun 21st October 2007

Dublin Institute of Technology, Kevin Street, Dublin 12 under the direction of Gaku Homma Kancho. Gaku Homma was an uchi-deshi at Iwama towards the end of O-Sensei's life. Since 1978 Homma Sensei has been Kancho of the independent Nippon Kan dojo in Denver, Colorado. More recently, he has established the AHAN (2001), an organisation dedicated to promoting community service beyond the dojo, whose activities now extends around the world.

It will provide low price books in English and foreign languages, dvds, music cds, PC games, Children's' Toys, clothing, household goods, furniture, etc. It will also comprise of a small coffee shop area for people to socialise after browsing through the shop's goods and an internet point for searching the Net. Kirin wants to be a small village where Aikido students and members of the local community can meet and spend time together exchanging experiences and values.
