I'm a Swedish writer and aikido instructor, 6 dan Aikikai Shihan, former Vice Chairman of the International Aikido Federation. I've practiced aikido since 1972. I also teach the sword art iaido. Here's my budo bio.

A personal selection of aikido sites
There is, of course, a vastness of Aikido resources on the Internet - and constantly growing, too. Below is a small selection of sites, which I do myself find interesting or would for other reasons want you to visit. Some of them, hopefully not all, you are likely already to be familiar with.
Perhaps you have some Aikido link favorites you think would interest me as well? Do not hesitate to let me know, in that case. Also, I would be grateful if you help me keep these links accurate - please, let me know if any of them has moved or generates a 404.
Wherever these links might lead you, feel free to come back to my little fragment of the web - whenever. I will try to add material pretty much constantly (if not always frequently).
