Memorial Day Weekend Gasshuku
May 29 @ 8:30 am - May 30 @ 11:30 am PDT
Join us for the 31st (almost annual) Iwama-Style May Aikido Seminar on Saturday and Sunday, May 29 and 30, 2021 to learn from the top instructors in the Takemusu Aikido Association via online classes.

Hans Goto Shihan, 7th dan

Bernice Tom Shihan
Wolfgang Baumgartner Sensei
Each class will include a presentation by the Sensei and then some time for discussion. Due to the large number of students, the Sensei will generally not be able to watch everyone’s performance. In fact, we will ask you to turn your video off and mute during the presentation to conserve bandwidth.
It is preferable for seminar participants to be in an area large enough to practice and without distraction. Keiko gi is encouraged. Bokken and Jo will be required for most of the classes. Best if you have a covid-safe partner for the kumiwaza. Best if you have some familiarity with the Iwama Aikido weapons curriculum. If you can’t provide for these suggestions, you are welcome to register and participate but your experience won’t be as great.
It is our intention to provide online access to a recording of the classes for registrants after the seminar. This is technology-dependent and thus not guaranteed.
You can register for the whole weekend or just one day. Discounts available for early registration.
Open to all Aikidoists. Space is limited.
