T.K. Lee - Aikido of Houston
Cliff Marcus - Aikido of Nassau County
Kazuho Nishida - City Aikido of Los Angeles

Yes, I saw that as well. Much deserved, IMHO. She is a truly great person on and off the mat.
I did not see her listed as a Shihan though...is it not automatic?

BTW- Roma Strathman is a 7th Dan (female) under the Fugakukai org. She is based in Md.

Cecilia Ricciotti Sensei (Ki Society) is also 7th Dan.

Jane Ozeki Sensei is the first woman 7th Dan in the USAF, and I'm very happy for her. My dojo had the pleasure of hosting her for a seminar last November. :-D I would also think that would make her a shihan, but the teacher list was just updated in December. Maybe by the next update?

Congrats to all!

I just ran across a demonstration video featuring Ozeki sensei that was posted by her daughter on YouTube:

Congratulations go out to her and everyone else who received kagami biraki promotions!
