The Hong Kong Aikido Association has set up the Kenneth Cottier Fund to mark the 1st Anniversary of Sensei’s passing as a tribute to his enormous dedication and contribution to Aikido over the past four decades.
The Fund will be used to promote Aikido in Hong Kong and to foster the Association’s relationship with Hombu Dojo and other Aikido organisations overseas.
The Executive Committee of the HKAA will be responsible for the administration and use of the Fund. A sum of HK$100,000 has been put aside to launch the Fund. The Fund will be “topped up” with an amount to be decided by the Executive Committee and by voluntary donations or contributions from members and friends of Cottier Sensei and the Association.
Contributions will be most welcome. If you would like to make a contribution details please approach the Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org. for details
