Nederlandse Naginata Renmei
Secretary - Mark Berghaan
Aya Masuhara is a long time friend of our federation and has proven herself valuable as a translator during our seminars. With her insight of Japanese customs and way of thinking she has helped out in both political and highly sensitive talks in which she translated and helped bring understanding in a calm and professional manner.
European Kobudo Convention
General Director and Host for 2015 - Arjan F. Tervoort
Aya Masuhara has been part of the European Kobudo Convention since it's start in 2012. On the floor of the EKC Aya's assistance is invaluable. Aya was presenting host and gracefully welcomed the participants from all different countries, having the operational lead and ensuring a smooth event. Her help in the planning and the wake of the event were equally indispensable. Aya's calm, friendly and professional attitude and her relentless drive and effort make her a very valuable part of our organisation.

It has been my pleasure to work with Aya Masuhara over the past 8 years, both in business and (inter-) cultural affairs. Her profound understanding of both Asian and Western worlds is priceless. I have come to know her as a very dedicated professional, always and positively aiming directly for results, reaching her goals and realizing projects swiftly and efficiently. And - very importantly - always in good moods and wit!
