The Membership Fee Structure working group was formed after the last IAF Congress to answer to the request of the member organisations for a new and more fair fee system - especially considering those with limited financial capacities.

The group is constituted of Leif Sunje (chairman), Mona Brude, Henriette Flader, Frederic Heylbroeck, Charlie McGinnis and Tamas Molnar.

Besides being more fair, the system should also be easy to maintain for the administrative staff and adaptable enough to allow for raising a given budget need.

The members of the work group are currently refining a draft that will be proposed at the IAF Congress in 2020.

Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow.
—Morihei Ueshiba

The Disability Working Group consists at the moment of 6 members: Magali Chambenoit-Levy from France, William Burrel and Martos Aineias from Greece, Jacqueline von Arb from Norway, Molly Hale from the USA and Lydia Zydel from the Netherlands.

Lydia Zydel is also co-creator of a manual to teach and include persons with disabilities in the Martial Arts in general. This manual, available in English, French, German and Italian, was developed as part of an EU Erasmus+ project. See: www.martialarts-prime.com.

The Youth Working Group has 10 members at the moment coming from Romania, Sweden, Hungary, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Slovenia, Belgium, Switzerland and the Netherlands.

Our mission is to organise international events for the youth as well as to establish a platform for the promotion and professionalisation of youth aikido.

For the latter we’re planning on creating a databank accessible for all members, among other activities. This databank will contain ideas for special programmes, classes, games, examination and so forth.

Following the Takasaki declaration, the IAF Gender Balance Working Group has been making continuous effort to bring a better gender balance in Aikido. Our current target is to increase the number of female board members and high ranking teachers, who are absolutely minority in the world Aikido community at this stage.

Our working group consists of 25 delegates from all over the world, holding online meeting bimonthly, to exchange ideas and to raise awareness in gender balance in and out of her own country. We organise and support activities such as Gender Day, female instructor seminars and campaigns which sheds more light on female teachers as role model. These activities are entirely open to all the IAF members. Moreover, your engagement is highly appreciated.

Co-chaired by:
Satomi Ishikawa and Jose Otte
