Saturday 30 June - Friday 6 July 2018
St Ignatius College Riverview, Tambourine Bay Road, Lane Cove, Sydney


This year we are pleased to welcome our guest instructor, Suzuki Shihan from Tokyo Hombu Dojo, to join us at a new harbour side venue, Riverview College. Suzuki Sensei has previously visited Australia with Doshu, and last year a number of our NextGen/younger Aikidoka met and trained with him at Hombu. Suzuki Shihan will be instructing on the the last 3 days of the event.               

Smibert, Botterill and Janiv Shihans will lead a special training focus on basic and advanced techniques from the teaching syllabus. They will be supported by TTC members and other senior teachers.

The Instructors' Course is open to everyone 1st kyu and above who is or wishes to be an instructor. Shidoin and Fuku-Shidoin should be sure to attend the special Shidosha class on the mat, which is run especially for them.

We are also trying a new format for the timetable that doesn’t occupy two weekends in succession! Training will commence on Sunday 1 July through to Friday 6 July, see below for Registration details. 




Non AKA members are welcome to join the training on Wednesday, Thursday and/or Friday
when Suzuki Sensei will be teaching.
