The T. K. and Mitsuko Chiba Seminar Endowment Fund

The goal of the Seminar Endowment Fund is to establish financial support for opportunities for Aikido training — such as weekend seminars — on an ongoing basis, in order to transmit and more fully develop the art as taught by our founder, T. K. Chiba.
