Today, I received the following message from Frédéric Heylbroeck, President of the IAF Member for Belgium:



Dear Peter

This is to inform you that Dany Leclerre Shihan has been awarded the Order of the Rising Sun - Gold and Silver Rays, by the Japanese government.

This, in acknowledgment of his career spreading Aikido.

I understand it is a rare and prestigious decoration.

Best regards


On behalf of the IAF, I would like to offer warm congratuilations to Leclerre Shihan and send him our good wishes.
