If we look to the natural world, successfull cross-pollinization can occur in organisms of the same species. We can think of aikido as a species under the genus martial arts.
Metaphors aside, it is with this thought in mind that the Fredericksburg Aikido Club is hosting an all-Virginia Aikido Friendship Seminar on Saturday, November 1st.
Senior instructors form the major aikido organizations represented in Virginia will instruct this interesting seminar at a neutral venue, Thornburg Middle School Gym near Fredericksburg, Virginia. Imagine how we can expand our understanding of Aikido by looking at it from a variety of knowledgeable viewpoints in one training session? Each class will focus on the teachings of the different Aikido lineages.
Common Ground 2003 is a day for practitioners of Aikido to come together and experience the diversity of Virginia's Aikido Resources. Advance Registration is strongly suggested. Registration form and more info are at www.gashuku.net
