We frequently host guest instructors to teach day- and weekend-long seminars in both Aikido and Iaido. The goal of seminars is to expand the scope and breadth of a student’s practice by inviting senior instructors from around the world.
Aikido is not an isolated practice, and by attending seminars a student can gain fresh perspective and inspiration to deepen their understanding. We have invited direct students (uchi deshi) of the founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba, including Yoshimitsu Yamada Sensei and Kazuo Chiba Sensei.
We have also hosted the following sensei: Harvey Konigsberg, Lorraine DiAnne, Claude Berthiaume, Peter Bernath, Donovan Waite, Didier Boyet, Larry Levitt, David Stier, Wee-wow Dumlao, Andres Corrada, Jaime Kahn, and Joshua Layton.
Every summer we hold an intensive weapons retreat at Cloud Mountain Aikido in Roxbury, Vermont.
We also schedule sesshin (intensive zazen retreats), Diversity training, and Conflict Resolution workshops.
