Registration for Aiki Kai Australia's 2017 Winter School is now open!
Sunday 9 July - Saturday 15 July 2017
Sydney Academy of Sport and Recreation, Wakehurst Parkway, Narrabeen, Sydney
This year we will continue and extend the special focus on basic and more advanced techniques from the kyu syllabus. Smibert, Botterill and Janiv Shihans will lead us through how the syllabus develops the student at each kyu level. They will be supported by TTC members and other senior teachers. We will also be privileged to again have Louis van Thieghem Shihan with us, as part of our international family. A highlight of the week is the sunrise meditation and training at a local beach. The Instructor’s Course is open to everyone, 1st kyu and above who is or wishes to be an instructor.
The registration desk will be set up in the gym on Sunday 9 July from 2–6 pm. Please advise if you anticipate arriving early or late.
