The famous Aiki Expo events sponsored by Aikido Journal were held in 2002, 2003, and 2005. These martial arts extravaganzas brought together large numbers of leading instructors of aikido and other kindred martial arts in a spirit of friendship.
The overall concept of the Aiki Expo events was to stimulate both instructors and participants to venture outside their normal spheres of activity and experience new training approaches and ideas. Many chose to crosstrain in the numerous arts available.
