Aikido Victoria is once again holding one of it's celebrated mountain weapons training events! Which are only staged every second year, so don't miss out. These events are very popular as, to quote, 'It's all of the training, without any of the living discomfit". Accommodation is at a ski lodge in Mt Hotham and the lodge has wonderful views across the valley. After a hard day of weapons training in all sorts of terrain you come back to cosy and warm living quarters and great food. Masochists need not apply to this event!
The conditions around the lodge make for some outstanding training on different grade slopes, in the midst of tall grass tussocks and on rocky surfaces. This is a complete change to the sterilized training sensation of a dojo mat. You need all your wits about you to cope with doing the techniques while paying close attention to every step. What could be more fun? Answer, sitting by the fire in the evening with a good drink and good company.
