"Therefore to compete in techniques, winning and losing, is not true budo. True budo knows no defeat. Never defeated means never fighting." - Morihei Uyeshiba, founder of aikido.

Y. Kawahara Shihan (pictured here), 8 Dan, was the head Aikikai instructor for Canada. We were extremely priveliged to have Kawahara Sensei live and teach regular classes in Kelowna for almost a year. Kawahara Shihan passed away June 2, 2011.
