5th Kyu Testing and Winter Misogi, Saturday, January 10th.

We will be holding a 5th Kyu testing on Saturday, January 10th in the dojo. This special event will be followed by another special event, our annual Winter Misogi. Please show your support for your fellow stuudents as they display the results of their dedication and practice.

As we want to esure plenty of time for each of these happenings, the misogi will be held at a location somewhere near the dojo and not Clayton Beach this time. Make sure to bring your bokken, warm clothes and water for the misogi.

10th Anniversary of Kulshan Aikikai
Celebration August 3-5 2012



Grand Opening Celebration Seminar with
Rev. Z. Okimura, 6th Dan, Shihan

Rev. Z. Okimura, Shihan lead our Grand Opening Celebration on November 22, 2008.

Okimura Shihan performed a dojo blessing as well as lead students in a seminar. Approximately 100 people joined in the blessing ceremony ans 22 participated in the seminar (which pretty much packed our somewhat small space). Yudansha traveled from Seattle and Oregon to join in our celebration and it was especially gratifying to have many of the original founding students of Kulshan Aikikai come back and celebrate with us. It was truly a special occasion.

Here's a link to pictures of the celebration
