Aikido groupSansuikai Belgium
Sansuikai can be thought of as an “agreement” aimed at supporting my European students in terms of organisation. However, it is a non-political and non-profit organisation and does not constitute competition to national federations. That is why, instead of using the word “organisation” I prefer to use “agreement”, which should be based on four principles: Friendliness, Fairness, Freedom and Flexibility.
Sansuikai Europe is Yamada sensei's legacy for his European students. Sansuikai's organisation is based on kohai-sempai and teacher-student relationship. These relationships are based on mutual respect and this is the essence of Sansuikai. If we build Sansuikai based on respect, then we also pay our respect to Yamada sensei, for all he has given us.
