Dear USAF members,
Many of you have received an email from DoYu Global (“DoYu”) promoting the sale of its aikido related products. Because we have received several questions regarding the email, we wanted to clarify that the USAF was not aware that DoYu would be using the USAF group photo from summer camp and familiar camp wording to sell its products. It is important that our members know that at this time, neither the USAF nor Yamada Sensei are endorsing DoYu’s products and neither the USAF nor Yamada Sensei are benefitting financially from the sales of DoYu products.
Please know that it is an individual’s decision to purchase products from DoYu, and we are not trying to discourage or dissuade you from doing so. It is just important that the facts are clear and that there are no misrepresentations or assumptions as to who may be benefitting from DoYu sales. Once again, neither the USAF nor Yamada Sensei receive any financial benefits from the sale of DoYu products.
Director of Operations
