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
