Objectives of the FNAAE

1. To represent Spain before international aikido organizations, specifically, the International Aikido Federation -IAF- and the European Aikido Federation -EAF-.

2. To vindicate before the High Sports Council (CSD), Ministry of Culture and Sports, the independent identity of aikido as a ‘sports modality’, not as a specialty.

3. To later on request the subsequent creation of a Spanish Aikido Federation, as occurs in most of the countries around us.

To achieve these objectives, the FNAAE will inform on this project and will send an inclusive invitation to all aikido organizations in Spain that are interested in achieving these objectives.

 

Flexibility and multilateralism that respects the idiosyncrasy of each organization is intended; so that, with the solidarity of all in common union, mutual aid, and working together, Spanish aikido reality can be shown, both in quantity and quality, before the Ministry of Culture.

 

The FNAAE seeks thereby to make visible all aikido practitioners, instructors and dojos that actually are in Spain, many more than double of the official federative data of the CSD.

International Aikido Federation -IAF-

The creation of the FNAAE is the culmination and fulfilment of the IAF mandate to create an ‘umbrella organization’ for the Spanish membership that would bring together all those organizations with official recognition of the   Aikikai Aikido World Headquarters Honbu Dojo of Japan that were interested in participating.

The chronology until the constitution of the FNAAE begins in 2010 with the request to participate in the IAF from the association Spain Aikikai, since Spain had no representative. For this reason, this organization was invited by the IAF to attend the following congress as an observer-candidate for a representative partner of Spain, an essential requirement to become a member.

Consequently, Spain Aikikai attended the 11th IAF Congress, held in Tokyo in 2012. Later, in 2014, when Spain Aikikai sent the official application to obtain membership, the IAF reported that there was another Spanish organization, Aetaiki, that also wanted to become a member, asking for a dialogue in order to study the possibility of presenting a joint candidacy.

As a result of the negotiations, a joint candidacy was presented, led by Spain Aikikai and Aetaiki, with the support of Aikikan Spain and the Canarias Aikikai Aikido.

ACAE, one of the five organizations Recognized by the Hombu Dojo (HRO) in Spain, was informed and invited to participate, although there was no response.

The joint candidacy, named “Aikido Aikikai Spain’, attended the 12th IAF Congress, held in Takasaki in 2016; this candidacy held the Spanish membership at that time, temporarily, until the creation of an umbrella organization that welcomed all interested HROs.

Since November 2019, once constituted and registered in the National Registry of Associations, the FNAAE, originally constituted by Spain Aikikai, Aikikan Spain and the Canarias Aikikai Aikido, is the Spanish member of the International Aikido Federation.

The IAF, in turn, is the only member of aikido in the Sport Accord association, IWGA (International World Games Association), in the AIMS (Alliance of Independent Recognized Members of Sport) and in the GAISF (Global Association of International Sport Federations); organizations all related to the IOC.

European Aikido Federation -EAF-

Likewise, the FNAAE has been the member and representative of Spain in the  European Aikido Federation -EAF-  since its reconstitution.

The EAF was created long time ago, but it has been without activity, recently it was decided to modernize the statutes adapting them to the current times -like a new constitution-, in Almere, Netherlands, in July 2109; with the presence of the Dôjôchô, Mitsuteru Ueshiba, and the IAF President, Kei Izawa. A new Board of Directors was elected, which has launched a comprehensive program of activities.

Among the purposes of the new EAF is the official relationship with the European Union, both for its official recognition of the EU, and to be able to participate in its sports, educational, social and cultural programs.

The EAF has approved in its first assembly the proposal of application to the EU for the creation of officially recognized aikido teaching qualifications at a European level.
