Membership of the IAF

 

Membership

Membership of the IAF is open to national organisations which have Recognition from the Aikikai Hombu
There are currently over 100 organisations which have Recognition from the  Aikikai Hombu, but not all of these organisations can be members of the IAF.

It is important to understand that Recognition by the  Aikikai Hombu is quite different from Membership of the IAF.

At present the IAF has a rule that only one organisation from each country may be a member, but the  Aikikai Hombu recognizes any aikido organization that fulfills the conditions for Recognition.ain
