46th Anniversary Gasshuku March 2016 ‘Early Bird Registrations Ending Soon’



Dear Aikido Friends,

Just a little reminder regarding taking advantage of our ‘Early Bird Registration’ of $240 before it runs out on the 30th November ’15.

Our Gasshuku’s have grown in recent years from 70-80 to over 150+ attendees, largely due to the international guest Shihan’s focusing on Kihon movement with emphasis on feeling the contact between Nage and Uke. This translates to an easily manageable tempo within a relaxed atmosphere suitable to young and mature participants of all levels.

Over the three days we have packed in training from 9am to 3:30pm with 10 minute breaks between classes and 1.5 hours for lunch.
