Changes to SAUK Membership fees

The Shobu Aikido Annual Membership fees have gone up in July. They've been static for over 5 years so it's not an unbearable increase.

Annual fees (July 2009)
type fee
standard £25
unwaged £15
junior ( £10

The other news is that SAUK has become part of The International Takemusu Aikido Federation (ITAF). This is a European Organisation created by a number of high ranking Aikidoka (including Pierre Chasang) who seek to create a European based organisation for the proliferation of Aikido without direct links to the Hombu, so that fees paid into ITAF as a parent organisation at least in part, come back to SAUK.
