These activities are not only based on the Spirit of Samurai (i.e. soldiers) that touts, “Samurai (i.e. soldiers) must serve to protect their families, their communities and their country.  And they cannot fulfil their duties without maintaining a good standing relationship with civilians.”, but driven by the Action Guidelines for Aikido Nippon Kan’s AHAN Activities.
