    • an eShop to order DVD’s, books and other tools and products around Applied Aikido
  • develop a network of professionals, experts, trainers and coaches who are developping approaches or using applied aikido elements in their trainings and professional activities
  • organize conferences to meet and share our practices. These conferences will be proposed locally (in your region, your country) and globally (to gather and meet from all over the world)
