It is with regret that we announce that Takeno Sensei has a scheduling conflict and will not be able to conduct the scheduled seminar in November 2010 at Aikido Yoshinkai Canada.
In place of the seminars with Takeno Sensei, we are pleased to announce a weekend of seminars with Inoue Kyoichi Sensei, 10 dan, on October 1-3 in Toronto. This will be the last in a series of three seminars in celebration of Kimeda Sensei's 50th year in Aikido.
Inoue Kyoichi Sensei began his study of Aikido in 1955 soon after the opening of the Yoshinkan Dojo. He, along with Kushida Sensei, under the direction of Gozo Shioda, is credited with the formalization of the basic movements and basic techniques of Yoshinkan Aikido. He was the head instructor of Aikdo to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department and was the Kancho of Yoshinkan Aikido until 2007. He holds the rank of 10 dan, and is now the Kancho of Shinwakai Aikido.
Anyone who has paid for Takeno Senseiís clinics may return those tickets for a full refund.
Tickets purchased for Takeno Senseiís clinics may be used for Inoue Senseiís clinics. Tickets do not need to be exchanged.
Tickets for the seminar are $180 which included 4 classes and a dojo party.
Please contact Michael Kimeda (aikispike(at)yahoo.com) or AYC (info(at)aikdo.ca) if you have any questions, would like to purchase tickets or would like a refund.
