As of August 1, 2020, Masayuki Kondo (Menkyo Kaiden) succeeded Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu Headquarters Director.
From now on, all the operation of Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu Headquarters (controlling domestic and overseas branches/study groups and students, dan examination/certification, operation/instruction of seminars and training camps, etc.) will be executed under the leadership of the new Headquarters Director.
Katsuyuki Kondo, former Headquarters Director (Menkyo Kaiden), will continue to focus on the management and transmission of the scrolls of Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu as General Affairs Director (formerly concurrently serving as Headquarters Director).
In addition, in line with the succession of Headquarters Director, Sumie Hasegawa was appointed as Assistant to Headquarters Director and Hideto Usuyama has been appointed as Vice Headquarters Director.
Under the new management of the headquarters, we will continue to work together to make every effort to preserve, spread and develop Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu. Your continuous cooperation would be appreciated.
