At least twice a year, Aikido in Fredericksburg hosts seminars with visiting instructors selected from among the best in the world. This helps students supplement their regular weekly training. Take a look at our Events page for a list of upcoming seminars.
Past and recurring seminars include:
- The Kenshukai Series. Kenshukai are workshops that further public understanding of Aikido, develop educated members, and educate other practitioners of Aikido. We have offered Kenshukai in How to Teach Aikido to Children, “No-Fall” Aikido, and How to Run an Aikido Dojo. Click here to purchase instructional DVDs from these programs.
- Common Ground. Every other year, we host a Friendship Seminar in which the senior Aikido instructors from different Aikido styles from around Virginia instruct and aikidoists from around the region participate.
- Gasshuku. Aikido in Fredericksburg coordinates the (almost) Annual Memorial Day Weekend Gasshuku for the Takemusu Aikido Association and in 2011 launched the first East Coast USA Iwama-Style Aikido Gasshuku, which is held every other year.
Upcoming seminars are listed on the Events page.
