Grand Opening Celebration with GEORGE LEDYARD 7th dan


Thank you to all who registered for this event.  We look forward to welcoming you to our new dojo facility!  If you didn’t get in on what will surely be a wonderful weekend of training and fellowship – keep an eye on our 2023 Events Calendar, MWA has even more great events planned in the upcoming year that you won’t want to miss.


Please join us to welcome George Ledyard 7th dan and celebrate the grand opening of MWA – Billings new dojo location November 18 – 20, 2022.

Ledyard sensei is one of the most sought after instructors of aikido today.  He is among Mitsugi Saotome’s original students and considered to be a most gifted aikidoka worldwide.  When you attend a seminar with Ledyard sensei, be prepared to not only learn but to be entertained.  It’s difficult for anyone to not be infected by Sensei’s wit and intense love of our art.

The new Billings dojo is located in the historical  downtown area at 2702 Minnesota Ave, the former “Laughing Dog Records location!  We have  engineered a new 800 sq. ft. sub-floor and training mat for everyone’s comfort.  Thus keeping with our historical desire to keep special events, comfortable and fun for all participants, this event has a maximum limit of 20 participants.  Which means space is limited and registration is solely on a first come basis.
