From our Birankai Friends to Students and Friends of Chiba Sensei

Dear Students and Friends of Chiba Sensei,

Mrs. Chiba has agreed to sell the last of Sensei’s life long collection of weapons and accessories. Below is a link to a website containing the collection.

The site itself is broken into three areas:

 

  • Tsuba
  • Kozuka, Kōgai, Menuki and Fuchi/Kashira
  • Swords

In each area there is a list of items. Clicking on a single item will show you details about that item as well as a Certificate of Authenticity, if one is available.

You can click on images in the detail pages to see larger versions.

The purchase process will take several steps:

  1. Click the “Buy Now” button you see on the listing page next to the item you wish to purchase.
  2. You will be directed to a page for you to fill in your shipping and personal information.
  3. Click the Purchase button.
  4. You will receive an email with further instructions, and the item will be placed on hold.
  5. Payments are being processed through Paypal. We will not be accepting checks. Items will be held for 4 days pending receipt of payment from Paypal. After 4 days, we will release the item to be sold to someone else. Once payment has been received your item will be processed and shipped to you, and the item marked as sold.

Thank you to Derek Shaw for building this website, Didier Boyet for cataloguing, researching, and appraising all of the items, Gary Payne for photographing them and Dick Miller for storing and shipping the items.

Congratulations to new Shihan

The title of Shihan is appointed by Aikikai Hombu Dojo, which states that “no additional power or authority accompanies the title of Shihan, but it shows qualifications as Aikido instructors of the highest rank.”

The USAF is pleased to announce two members who received Shihan title, effective January 1, 2017. They are:

Collins Smith, Bermuda Aikikai

Kazuho Nishida, City Aikido of Los Angeles

Congratulations!

In Memory of Peter Tamagni Shihan, Vineland Aikikai

 Peter Tamagni 1946 – 2016

On March 21st, 2016, the members of Vineland Aikikai announced with a heavy heart the passing of their Founder, Teacher and Mentor Shihan Peter Tamagni.

Peter was a  graduate of  St. Augustine Preparatory School. After receiving his BA degree from LaSalle University, he joined the US Navy. He began his career in public service as a teacher in the Vineland Public School System. He continued serving the public on the Vineland Police Department, retiring as a lieutenant. Later in life, he returned to his alma mater, St. Augustine Prep as a member of the faculty.

Peter had practiced in the martial arts of Judo, Jiu-jitsu and Aikido for over 50 years. For over 30 years, Peter was a student of  USAF Chief Instructor Yoshimitsu Yamada, Shihan, participating in many seminars and workshops.  Peter was the founder and chief instructor of the Vineland Aikikai, which marked its 30th anniversary in USAF in 2016. Recently, Peter was granted the distinguished title of Shihan.

In his early martial arts career Peter studied with such notable instructors as Mamoru Noguchi, Takahiko Ishikawa, and Gene Waddell.

Peter also was a certified scuba diver and a licensed airplane pilot.  For several years he had his own plane.

Peter was an active member of several organizations, including his local Church, the Fraternal Order of Police, Knights of Columbus, US Judo Federation and the US Aikido Federation.

Pete’s warm, kind and  generous spirit will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure to know him.

New York Aikikai Endowment

Dear friend of New York Aikikai,We are writing from New York with some good news about the New York Aikikai.

In 2015, the Board of Directors at New York Aikikai decided to create an Endowment Fund. This Endowment Fund will be a permanent source of support for the growth and development of the New York Aikikai and its programs.  There has been a wonderful response to the initial solicitation for this fund.  Thank you to those of you who have become our founding donors.  We are writing to you now in order to ensure that all members and friends from around the world have the opportunity to participate in this important effort. 

Yamada Sensei’s work during the past 50+ years has resulted in an extraordinary institution, the New York Aikikai. Through his love of and dedication to aikido and its study, Sensei has touched and inspired many people at home in New York as well as across the United States and abroad. The New York Aikikai’s dojo, which also serves as the headquarters for the United States Aikido Federation, is a place where aikidoka from around the globe immerse themselves in the study of aikido. It is our hope that through this Fund, we will help the NYA continue realizing Yamada Sensei’s vision and ensure his legacy will be with us for years to come.

The New York Aikikai is a special community that could not exist without the efforts of the many members who contribute in significant ways. In turn, the school provides a meaningful experience by growing and evolving. Whether developing the kids programs, performing community outreach, creating scholarships for inner city children, or special classes for beginners and advance practitioners, our aim is to thrive.

In order to maintain both the high level of training and the spirit of community, it has been important for Sensei that the dojo continues to be open and accessible to as many members and visitors as possible. The school strives to keep the monthly dues and mat fees low, even in the face of mounting costs. As you can imagine, the expenses of maintaining a building and a school in Manhattan are high and only increase over time. 

To ensure our school’s economic sustainability, we humbly request that you consider a donation to the New York Aikikai Endowment Fund. Making a gift today, your contribution will help keep the New York Aikikai the vibrant place we treasure. Any amount counts. (Donate here) Or if you prefer to make a donation by check, please make it out to NY Aikikai (Memo: Endowment) and send it to the address found below.

In order to help with the effort of raising funds for an endowment, the Board of New York Aikikai has formed the Endowment Advisory Group comprised of dojo members. Should you have any questions or concerns about the Endowment, this group or any member of the Board should be able to help you.

The Endowment was established out of love and appreciation for a school and community that continues to enrich and inspire us. To all aikidoka, past and present, friends of the NYA worldwide, if the teachings of Yamada Sensei and the New York Aikikai have had an impact on your life, join us and donate today.

We thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

 

The New York Aikikai Board of Directors

 

 

 

The New York Aikikai is a Nonprofit Organization, (under the 501(c)(3) terms of the Internal Revenue Code) – all contributions to the Fund are 100% tax-deductible.

The New York Aikikai may expend so much of the endowment fund as it deems prudent after considering the factors set forth N-PCL § 553(a)

Perhaps your workplace has a matching program. (Click for information about matching programs).

You can also consider the New York Aikikai Endowment Fund in your estate planning. (Click here for info).

Of course, we will generate a letter for your 2015 tax return.
