Aiki Trend has been around for 2 years now and it is ready and proud to launch its new store thanks to the help and support of many fellow Aikido and Iaido practitioners who believed in us right from the beginning of this project.
We wanted to take this opportunity to thank some of our sponsors and Aikido friends who without them Aiki Trend's new online store could not go live today: THANK YOU, MERCI, GRACIAS, OBRIGADO!
Without one of our main collaborators, this project would not be a reality: Our store photography by the talented Jaimie Kahn ( NYC ). We also thank Eiki Somekawa ( Spain ) Paula Herrera ( Chile ) and Kjartan Clausen for offering their support and photography as well.
Thank you to: Claude Berthiaume ( Aikido de la Montagne ), Penny & Peter Bernath ( Florida Aikikai ), Vu Ha ( Boston Aikikai ), Michelle Feilen ( Aiki Feilen Barcelona ), Ricardo Corbal ( Federacion Latino Americana de Aikido ), Clauber Scarparo ( Senshin Dojo Brazil ), Silvia Pebble ( Beauty & Aikido ) Karen de Paola ( Skylands Aikikai ), Midwest Aikido Center ( Chicago ), New York Aikikai and the US Aikido Federation. We are very lucky to be part of this fantastic Aikido community that has fully embraced us and we hope to continue tailoring quality Aikido and Iaido jewelry for the martial arts lover in you.
A special thank you to all our clients who make this possible. Please do stay in touch!
