Dear 46th Anniversary Participants,
A message of appreciation from Shihan Toshiharu Sawada from Kimori Dojo, Nagoya and Shihan Nobuo Takase of Aikido Shinryukan,
Both Shihan would like to express their enjoyment and gratitude to everyone who attended this year’s 46th Anniversary Gasshuku. They mentioned the friendship and warmth of atmosphere felt on and off the mat and the feeling of being humbled to have so many enthusiastic people come together for the event.
Barbara and Shihan Takase would also like to sincerely thank everyone who helped over the lead up and the three days of the Anniversary Gasshuku. In their words….’this year’s event wouldn’t have run so smoothly without the wonderful team effort by our generous members.’
In addition an important date to note in your calendar for next year is the 3rd, 4th, 5th March 2017 this will be the 47th Anniversary Aikido Shinryukan International Gasshuku. We look forward to sharing more information with you throughout the year.

Finally a special thank you goes out to those participants who travelled from throughout NZ, Australia, Samoa, New Caledonia, Japan and Canada, making our anniversary a memorable occasion.
Take care and enjoy the new year of training and development, hope to see you on the mat again soon.
