THE URAYASU CITY AIKIDO ASSOCIATION AND THE CHIBA PREFECTURE YOSHINKAN AIKIDO ASSOCIATION

AIKIDO RYU - THE URAYASU CITY AIKIDO ASSOCIATION AND THE CHIBA PREFECTURE YOSHINKAN AIKIDO ASSOCIATION

The Urayasu City Aikido Association was formed in 1990 by Ando Shihan, in cooperation with Nakajima Shihan of the Aikikai and with Tsugio Umeda elected as the Chairman.
This federation was formed with the goal of re-uniting the Yoshinkan and the Aikikai, preferring to see the similiarities rather than the differences between the two styles. Every year in January the Urayasu City Aikido Association holds a kagamibiraki ceremony; an annual event of cutting the New Year's round rice cakes and eating them in sweet bean paste soup; and every year in May the association hosts the Urayasu City Aikido Demonstration.
The 10th and 15th Anniversary Demonstrations were held in particularly lavish style.
The Chiba Prefecture Yoshinkan Aikido Association was formed in 2002 in order to bring all Yoshinkan Aikido activity in Chiba Prefecture under the Ryu umbrella. Various activities aimed specifically at children; such as youth training camps or the Junior Aikido Demonstration; are carried out under the auspices of the Chiba Prefecture Yoshinkan Aikido Association.
The association also provides financial aid in various forms to participants in the All Japan Aikido Demonstration.
