ETAN  (European Tomiki Aikido Network)

 

In an historic meeting on the 18th November, 2006, ETAN (European Tomiki Aikido Network), was formed.

The aim of ETAN is to promote the development and practise of Tomiki Aikido throughout Europe in the traditional and Waseda way.

Members and representatives from Belgium, Bosnia, Czech, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom discussed issues relating to the recent political activities in Japan and how this would affect Aikido in Europe.

ETAN is a "loose" group and will organise regular Seminars throughout Europe, which includes invitations to prominent Japanese Tomiki Aikido teachers.  An annual European Open Championship is also planned. Through ETAN a closer collaboration with participating countries is intended so that a more unified approach and better understanding of the issues will ensue.

Links with Japan will be maintained for technical and Dan Grade Registration purposes and the route chosen will be through the JAA International Division. 

A website will soon be created to further improve communications.

This is an open network to create interaction between the participating countries (organisations and independent dojos)

Representatives

In case of a disagreement, the annual ETAN -meeting will formulate a solution on the next annual meeting.

Workgroups for competition, seminars and grading

There is a lot of expertise amongst the participating countries, each country can send 1 person to the workgroup to set up the necessary for the ETAN events.
