Empowerment of women in Saudi Arabia by means of Aikido
The project is aiming at empowerment of young female in Saudi Arabia, to raise awareness of their physical and mental capacity and increase their strength as an individual. Aikido, a form of budo emerged in Japan during the World War as means of peace, asks for inner peace and integrity of each person, not fighting against others. As the member of International Aikido Federation, Saudi Aikikai started to promote Aikido among females, to strengthen their personhood by this principle. Gender Balance Working group of the IAF supports their initiative and sends a female instructor to train a group of local females. The project also intends to raise local female instructors in 3 years time.
