Birankai North America exists to further the growth and development of Aikido as created by Morehei Ueshiba and interpreted by his Uchi-deshi T.K. Chiba Shihan. Birankai NA's member dojos and senior teachers seek the continued growth and development of Chiba Sensei's work.
Birankai North America's operating costs come primarily from annual membership fees. Fees have also supported scholarship and special events.
Birankai North America's mission requires that we continually strive to improve our understanding and transmission of the art of Aikido. This effort requires more resources than what can covered by membership fees alone. We are offering individuals an opportunity to further the Birankai educational mission by making a tax deductible contribution. Contributions will be used to support the development of Birankai North America, its member dojos and individuals through a variety of programs and initiatives.
Contributions can be made to any of the following categories:
General to support all Birankai programs and activities
