We are celebrating our third year in operation, currently at two YMCA locations. In collaboration with Bushido Budo Centre we are hosting a seminar with one of the foremost Aikido Instructors in North America. Pat Hendricks Sensei will be conducting a weekend seminar at the Bushido Budo Centre in East Edmonton on the weekend of November 3-4.
She brings grace and mastery to the art. If you have practiced Aikido and have been fortunate to attend one of her seminars you will want to attend this one. If you have little or no experience in Aikido, you will still want to attend this seminar.
The seminar will run for two days starting out with basics and then moving up from there. As an experienced practitioner, you know you can always review basics. As a beginner you will have a chance to get some firm grounding and then see where you can take it from there.
Registration will be at the seminar. Please use cash. We will try to accommodate as many as possible but the room is not infinite. We will start late on Saturday and end early on Sunday to accommodate the wonderful Aikidoka visiting from out of town.

If you do not own a bokken or jo, there will be a small supply on hand. If you have your own, please bring them. If you have extra, bring it. It might help out someone else.
After a good workout on the mats, the appetite is piqued. For those interested, we will be gathering at Da Capo Caffe at 7:30pm Saturday night. This will be a time to eat, chat and share a drink with the fine people you trained with. Antonio promises that you will be well taken care of. Everyone will be responsible for their own tab.
