Most widely recognised martial arts these days involve competition but Aikido has no competition. The IAF agreed for Aikido to participate provided it could do so as a demonstration. Sport Accord agreed to this request
The Hong Kong Aikido Association was invited to send a delegation. The qualifying criteria meant few members could qualify, but we were lucky that Jerald Tai was able to attend. As we could send only one delegate, the organising Committee arranged for Jerald to demonstrate with a delegate from Switzerland.
