Dear Fellow Aikidokas,
It has already been 5 years
since we held our last major seminar to commemorate
our 15th Anniversary. I remember the event fondly as
a gathering of top Shihans and students from all parts
of the world. It was held in the grand ballroom of the
Pan Pacific Hotel and attracted more than 500 delegates.
Come March 2008, we
will be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Shinju-kai.
In conjunction with the celebration, we are planning
a 3 day event with 16 training sessions, graced by Hiroshi
Tada Shihan (9th Dan) and over ten other high ranking
international Shihans from various countries. In addition,
there will also be a public demonstration by participating
countries, visiting Shihans and other Instructors at
Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza. Special classes will also
be held at Shinju-kai Headquarters so that our foreign
guests will have the opportunity to see our home dojo.
The celebrations will culminate in a grand Celebration
Dinner on the last evening.
We hope members and fellow aikidokas from all over the world will be present at this rare opportunity to share their knowledge and camaraderie.
I look forward to
meeting you in Singapore in 2008!
Philip F.C. Lee
Chairman / Chief Instructor
