Hello,

I would like to announce this celebration to the aikiweb community:

In November 2008, Shioda Soke, head of the Yoshinkan, promoted Kimeda Sensei to the rank of 9th Dan and in celebration of this achievement Aikido Yoshinkai Canada will be hosting a series of clinics and a reception on the weekend of March 6-7, 2009 in Toronto. Special guest instructors for the clinics are Morita Sensei (8th Dan) from San Francisco, CA, and Mustard Sensei (7th Dan) from Burnaby, BC.

For more information and details about this event, please visit the AYC website at www.aikido.ca and check out our "Events" page at

Hi Michael,

Congratulations go out to Kimeda sensei for his achievement in attaining 9th dan. I had the pleasure of training with him years ago. I hope the celebration goes wonderfully well!

Best,

Hello Michael,

My warmest, heart-felt congratulations go out to Kimeda Sensei. I am a jodo student in Pickering and have had the pleasure of training with Kimeda Sensei on numnerous occasions. He is one of my favourite people I have met on my journey in the martial arts. A true gentleman (thoug kinda scary when he gets going!). Enjoy the celebrations.

Sincerely,
Steve Kubien
