Kawahara Yukio Shihan (Shihan for Canada, Aikikai) will be conducting a weekend Seminar on Saturday, 21 January and Sunday, 22 January. We would like to invite all our friends to come down and enjoy the sand, sea and sun in Barbados for a couple weeks during the long cold Canadian Winter. Regular practices will be ongoing during the two weeks that Kawahara Sensei is in Barbados.

Cheap flights to Barbados are available during January if booked in the fall. Please contact Air Canada for flights out of Toronto Pearson and AA for flights out of Miami
