First-ever annual AKI USA June-Gloom Gashuku & Yudansha Testing, weekend of June 20, 2008.

We’re excited to announce that beginning this year in June, 2008, AKI USA will hold its annual summer camp (gasshuku) and yudansha testing at its headquarter dojo in Santa Barbara. In addition to AKI USA members, we extend warm welcome to members of all AKI dojo (Canada, Chile, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, and of course Japan), as well as members of all other affiliations.

To begin this tradition, we are extremely fortunate to have Takeda Daiyu Sensei visiting us. Daiyu Sensei is one of Takeda Yoshinobu Shihan's senior students and chief instructor of AKI Tatebayashi in Gunma Prefecture, Japan.

For further information, please contact John Kuehl at (805) 452-0078 or email Andy: andycranmer@earthlink.net
