About BCAF

on February 11 | in About, About BCAF, Blog |

The British Columbia Aikido Federation (BCAF) is a non-profit organization that has existed for over 30 years to support and promote Aikikai-style Aikido in British Columbia. Our goal is to promote, encourage, and teach the art and philosophy of Aikido as developed by Morihei Ueshiba.

 

Kawahara Shihan, assisted by a small and dedicated group of aikidoists, was the driving force behind the formation of the BCAF and its first Technical Director. The BCAF has grown over the years; we currently have over 20 member clubs throughout British Columbia.

 

We support our members by providing scholarships and travel subsidies to seminars, financial loans for dojos to purchase mats, and opportunities to enhance skills and abilities in the art of Aikido.

 

The BCAF is affiliated with the Canadian Aikido Federation and the Aikikai Foundation (Aikido World Headquarters, Tokyo, Japan).

The current Executive for the BCAF is as follows:

President: Barb Wolfe

Past President: Bruce Riddick

Vice-President: Curtis Kore

Secretary: Jean Lemire

Treasurer/Registrar: Adrian Taylor

Member-at-Large: Tony Leong

Aiki is not a technique to fight with or defeat the enemy. It is the way to reconcile the world and make human beings one family.
