This year marked the fiftieth edition of the great annual demonstration of the All Japan Aikido Embukai. The event was held as usual at Tokyo's Nippon Budokan, the legendary place of martial arts and budo in Japan. Like last year, I was helping out in the organization with my colleagues from Hombu. Let's review some of the highlights from this very special day through a selection of videos and photos taken during the event. Also, make sure that you keep an eye on this page as I am planing to regularly post new documents as I edit them.
