The late Kawahara Yukio shihan asked our sensei for permission to integrate the Heart Reflection Style in his aikido dojo across Canada. Two senior students, who are also aikido sensei, have taught Heart Reflection Style kenjutsu at several seminars in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Nova Scotia, and this is being incorporated into regular practice in many Aikido dojo under the late Kawahara shihan's jurisdiction across Canada. Here are some photos of a seminar in Kelowna British Columbia in June of 2011.
