WINTER 2022 FRIENDSHIP SEMINAR

The event will be hosted by Two Rivers Aikido in Kalispell MT on Saturday, January 15 and Sunday January 16, 2022.   Last year’s seminar was a rousing success and broke the ice for “in person” training after the initial COVID lock downs. This is certainly going to be another outstanding learning opportunity for everyone.
There can be a maximum number of 20 people, including instructors, for this event.  Cost is $45 cash/check at the door. Given that there are a limited number of Student spots available, please let Sensei Blomert or Brady know your plans to attend.  MWA will submit your information to secure your attendance confirmation.  You can also use this link https://tworiversaikido.org/membership/make-a-payment/Instructors will present in round robin format. Presenters will be Mark Leitzel and Leigh Schickendantz head instructors of Two Rivers Aikido.
