I just got back from the Hombu Dojo were I was in charge of filming the ceremony of the Kagamibiraki 2016 on behalf of the Aikikai and it is with great pleasure that I witnessed the appointment of Christian Tissier Shihan to the rank of 8th Dan Aikikai. His certificate was handed to him by the third Doshu, Ueshiba Moriteru. Among other awardees to the 8th Dan are Miyamoto Tsuruzo Shihan and Kimura Jiro Shihan. Didier Boyet Shihan received the 7th Dan.
