EVENTS

SEMINARS

Rusper Aikido Club actively supports and encourages its students to attend seminars and courses run by our association (Aikido for Daily Life) and others.

As Aikido is a non-competitive martial art, it is recommended that you experience a wide variety of teachers as they all have their own unique style and approach to Aikido. Some you may like, others you may not but along the way you will pick up new principles and techniques for your Aikido ‘tool box’. Courses and seminars provide you with an opportunity to practice your Aikido with new people and make lots of friends and connections.

Rusper Aikido Club host at least 2-3 seminars a year whereby a highly-respected and gifted instructor is invited to teach. Please look at our events below:
