2019 WINTER SCHOOL  - Register NOW

Saturday 29 June - Friday 5 July 2019
St Ignatius College Riverview, Tambourine Bay Road, Lane Cove, Sydney



This year we are pleased to again welcome, Suzuki Shihan from Tokyo Hombu Dojo, to join us at our Sydney harbourside venue. Suzuki Shihan visited our national Winter School last year and has previously visited Australia with Doshu. For older members of the association Suzuki Shihan's classes were very reminiscent of what we saw in a young Sugano Shihan when he first arrived in Australia, full of enthusiasm and great flexibility!

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

Smibert, Botterill and Janiv Shihans will lead a special training focus on basic and advanced techniques from the teaching syllabus. There will also be a special Shidosha Class, aimed at those who are teaching Aikido. These classes will be supported by TTC members and other senior teachers. The Instructor’s Course is open to everyone 1st kyu and above who is or wishes to be an instructor.



Accommodation and meals

Individual college rooms are provided, with shared facilities and a great common room for social evening activities. Double rooms are available on request.
