Here is a great article from Malory Graham (6th dan, Seattle Aikikai) on "10 Things You Can Do to Support Women in Aikido." From the article: "7. Put Women in Leadership Roles. Give women a true place of power at the table in your dojo or organization. Know the difference between having a woman serve in a President position vs. a Secretary or Admin role. We all benefit from the diversity of women’s voices in leadership roles."

    Please join us for our Annual Instructors Intensive, to be held July 17-19, 2020. This seminar will be for people who currently are instructors, and also anyone who has a wish to become an instructor in the future. Participation is open to not only Aikido Shimbokukai members and supporting members, but also to Aikidoists of any affiliation and lineage. ​ Rather than focus on how to do techniques, the content of the seminar will focus on developing instruction skills, improving the transmission of Aikido technique and philosophy, growing and maintaining a dojo, and other aspects of running a successful dojo. All participants will have the opportunity to interact with each other, share ideas, teaching methods and dojo management methods. We will, of course, have ample training time together as well! The venue for the seminar this year is the Abiding Spirit Center, in Crystal Lake, IL.

    Passing of O Sensei student Norman Miles

    Passing of O Sensei student Norman Miles
    From: Margaret Miles posted on 10. Jan 2020, 08:22pm

    Hello. I would like to pass along the belated news of the 2016 passing of my father, Norman Miles, who was one of the first foreign students under O Sensei (you can see him in this image: http://www.aikidonorthwest.co.uk/ethos.html). The memory of his dedication to Aikido, and the memorabilia I have from his time under O Sensei, have been a tremendous comfort since his passing. Not sure if my "Uncle" Kenny (also pictured in the photo) is still around - so many of the foreign students scattered to different corners of the world to start their dojos. Though my father did not move on to open a dojo of his own due to military business obligations, I think Uncle Kenny went to either Isle of Man or South Africa to spread O Sensei's teachings.
