2nd Annual RWAF Summer Camp

Announcing the 2nd Annual Ryu World Aikido Federation Summer Gasshku! Spend a week immersed in the life of Ryu Honbu Dojo; train alongside Ando Sensei’s uchi deshi and learn from the best.

The theme of this year’s gasshku is “Aiki no Ken”.

Students will study in detail basic movements using the ken.  From there, they will progress to studying the kumi ken and how these movements are related to taijutsu techniques. Ando Shihan will also teach the theory of the sword movements and the differences between movements with the ken in aikido and in other sword styles such as kendo or ken-jutsu.  This is an unmissable opportunity to receive such specialised instruction and broaden your understanding of both physical and philosophical aspects of aikido.

The gasshku is open to students of all styles of aikido.  Space is limited to the first 10 applicants so get your applications in as soon as possible.
