JUN YAMADA SHIHAN 35TH AIKIDO ANNIVERSARY IN KUALA LUMPUR


The year 2007 marks the 35th year since Aikikai Aikido was brought into Malaysia by Jun Yamada Shihan and also the 50th year of diplomatic relations between Malaysia and Japan.

In conjunction with these two auspicious events, a seminar was held on the 1st - 2nd September 2007 at the Seri Pacific Hotel in Kuala Lumpur which had the honor of five Shihans conducting the training classes: Masatake Fujita Shihan and Hiroshi Somemiya Sensei from Hombu Dojo, Motohiro Fukakusa Shihan from Thailand, Nobuo Takase Shihan from New Zealand and Jun Yamada Shihan himself. Participants from all over the region including Phillipines, Thailand, Myanmar, Hong Kong, Singapore, Oceania, Japan and Malaysia also attended.

5 members from the Seishinkan Dojo also had the opportunity to participate in the seminar. We had the pleasure of meeting other Aikidoka and also to learn from the Shihans during the seminar.
