Special training workshops or “gasshuku” are events that bring students together to focus on a specific topic or experience a guest instructor‘s approach to aikido. Since our first Gasshuku in 2016, MWA has held these types of sessions to foster more intensive training opportunities for our students. Workshops are held in a single day at the MWA locations throughout the year. Participation is limited to a maximum 25 students per session. Students and the instructor experience more personal interaction using this format.
Saturday December 14, 2019 James Sterling (3rd dan) will return as our guest instructor. Sterling sensei is the chief instructor at Shidokan Las Vegas, NV. He brings marital arts experience spanning 30 years and his “sold out” 2018 winter Gasshuku received 5 Star ratings.
