Itwas early 2014 when Akira Chiba san, Minester of Japanese Embassy in Iran, came to visit Ali dojo and start practicing as a memeber of Iran Aikido. we had the opportunity to meet him at the dojo once a week, due to his very busy schadule. His mission in Iran is finished and he is leaving Iran to his home land. It was a short time, but Iran Aikido was honorred to have him as an active practitioner. In this regards the Members of the Board desided to take a small and friendly sayonara party for him to thank him for all his supports and wish him a successful time on his new mission. May god help him on every step he takes.
