He is an 8th dan from the aikido organisation Aikikai, and the founder of the dojo (aikido club) San Diego Aikikai in San Diego where he relocated to in 1981. He is also the founder of an international aikido federation known as Birankai. In the aikido world, Chiba is sometimes known as a representative of the "hard" or "tough" side of aikido, with a strong emphasis on weapons training. As of May 2006, Chiba sensei has announced his gradual retirement from seminar-style training, which often imposes a heavy travel schedule. He has cited a desire to spend his remaining years closer to his family.Kazuo Chiba - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
