About the Events

In 1988, Wolfgang Baumgartner Sensei hosted the senior Iwama-style Aikido instructors in the U.S. for a seminar at the RideOut School in Tahoe City.  This is the site where Saito Morihiro Shihan had taught a great U.S. seminar.   This seminar has been expanded over the years and has now become the TAA (almost annual) Iwama-Style Memorial Day Weekend Aikido Gasshuku.

This year's invited instructors include:

Bill Witt Shihan - 8th dan

Hans Goto Sensei - 7th Dan

Bernice Tom Sensei - 7th dan

Kim Peuser Sensei - 7th dan

Wolfgang Baumgartner Sensei - 6th DAN

Aviv Goldsmith Sensei - 6th dan

Douglas Dale Sensei - 5th dan

with special guests

Ginny Breeland - 5th dan

Jason Yim - 5h dan

Bruce Mendenhall - 4th dan

Daniel Brasse - 4th dan


The Aikido training alone is worth the trip and a weekend at Lake Tahoe adds to the pleasure and camaraderie.  Taijutsu and Bukiwaza (aikiken and aikijo) will be emphasized.  A great training event to deepen your practice of Aikido as passed down from the founder through Saito Shihan (and now through his senior students).

All Aikidoists are welcome.
