  • Seaforth NSW

    You are invited to join the Kamakura Gym 20th anniversary gasshuku to be held in Sydney on July 16/17th.

    Eleven Dan grades (7th to 2nd) will be coming from Japan and will be the largest group of high Dan grades AKI Aust has seen from Japan since K Day in the 90's. We doubt we will see an event this size again.

    Seino sensei will be conducting the training and all the others will be training partners for us all.

    Kamakura Gym is what Sasame Dojo morphed into after its closure. Sasame dojo was the 1st dojo in Shonan Aikido Renmei, now AKI ! The members of the Gym have tried to faithfully follow Takeda Sensei, and Yamaguchi Sensei's waza from the 80s and early 90s.

    Due to space restrictions we will have to limit numbers so register early.
