North County Aikikai is pleased to announce the promotion of its founder and chief instructor, Coryl Crane, Shihan, to the rank of 7th Dan by Aikikai Hombu Dojo.
Crane Sensei has lived and taught Aikido in the San Diego area for over 25 years under the auspices of the late T.K. Chiba Shihan. Her continued support of his legacy through the Birankai organization is a testament to Crane Sensei’s devotion to the history and future of Aikido. The many students of Crane Sensei owe her a debt of gratitude for her time and patience in transmitting her knowledge and experience.
The students of North County Aikikai offer our most profound thanks and congratulations for this achievement and her continuing dedication to the art of Aikido.
