In Association with Aikikai, Yoshinkan Budo, Ki Federation, Iwama Ryu, Daito Ryu AikiJujutsu, and the International Martial Arts Federation I.M.A.F.
Welcomes all True Practitioners in the Arts of Budo, and Aikido to a new Home. For years many federations and Dojos have turned their backs to each other. Wether for personal or political reasons. We take pride in creating a perfect enviorment for all true practitioners.
Here we find, and offer a home for all true to the Arts. The AikiBujutsu AikiBudo Federation of Traditional Aikido, is a Legacy that has been passed down through the genarations by our Founder O'Sensei Morihei Uyeshiba. In our Ranks Doshu is and will always be seen as our Current leader in Aikido, and Budo Circles alike.
Currently AAFA is in Charge of, and led by our Head Master Luis F. Alba, a Member of the Associated Federations listed above.
"It sadden's me to see how our schools have drifted appart after the years. It's time to call upon them all, and bring them together as one once more. Our Founder is O'Sensei, what would he say if he saw the politics that have arrose since his passing. Here I offer a Home for all. I've been fortunet enough to have had open doors amongst our leading federations of today and to be able to teach under their roofs it's truly a blessing from above. I want all to feel the joy that such gifts bring, and to feel the welcoming open arms of all our Federations. We are all Different Chapters of One Great Book, that my Founder O'Sensei Created for us all. It's time to come together as One, and allow the true teachings of our founder to flourish as he woul've wished for. It'll be an honor not only to see students of this federation move up amongst our ranks but too the Associated Federations as well, in the hopes of reaching that a common bond, the inner peace, and understanding of the arts as we all yern for. Budo is not just and Art, it's a Way of Life". L.A.

PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO THE RESTORATION OF THE IWAMA DOJO
As you know, the Founder’s Dojo in Iwama was severely damaged in the Japan earthquake that occurred in March of this year.
Aikido Doshu, Moriteru Ueshiba, has decided to restore the Dojo. This is important, since the Dojo must be preserved for the future. Together with the Aiki Jinja, it is unique in the Aikido and Budo world. This is where O´Sensei completed Aikido, and we always have had a close relation to Iwama.
The restoration will take 4–6 months and is, of course, very expensive. This initiative of accepting donations is taken to appeal to the Aikido world for financial support, and is supported by Doshu.
Everyone is welcome to contribute a donation of any amount. Please send your donations to the following bank account:
