AKI Santa Barbara Kid's Gasshuku (Summer Camp) Aug. 12 & 13
Posted 7/24/2006 8:09pm [from Matt Bridi]

Come join us August 12th & 13th (Saturday & Sunday) for the first ever Aikido Kenkyukai International Kids' Gasshuku (Camp)! We're inviting our friends from our organization's sister dojos in Australia, Japan, Canada, and New Zealand this year to make it truly a once-in-a-lifetime international experience for the children! Last year's gasshuku was organized and led by Matt Sensei. Activities included Aikido games, Aikido classes, Sumo Wrestling at the beach, Watermelon Splitting, Bokto (wooden sword) practice, Japanese Caligraphy, and even a Sign Language Class. This year, in celebration of the 10th year anniversary of AKI USA, Matt Sensei has made the gasshuku extra special. He not only opened it to children from other countries, but he has also added even more to the schedule, such as a public demonstration, and many cultural exchange activities. Safety, cooperation, and cultural awareness will be the focus of the weekend. Only 10 spaces available!
