Colorado Ki Aikido Seminar Overview


Hosted by Susan Chandler Sensei, 6th dan and Head Instructor of Denver Ki-Aikido, and Derek Nabel Sensei, 5th dan Rocky Mountain Ki Society, Denver classes will include an evening of All-Levels Ki Aikido on Friday at Denver Aikido.


During the Denver workshops, Kashiwaya Sensei will focus primarily on Yudansha preparation, with Friday morning and afternoon being open only to Ki-aikidoka ranked 2nd kyu and higher.


The Denver seminar sessions will culminate with a day of testing for several Ki-aikidoka from the Denver metropolitan area who have been training with much anticipation for this seminar. The Denver seminar portion will be a mask-required event.


Boulder classes will be hosted by Abel Villacorta Sensei, 4th dan and Head Instructor of Boulder Ki Aikido and Director of One Dojo in Boulder. All Sunday and Monday classes will be open to everyone with basic Aikido experience regardless of affiliation or style, and will be a mask-optional event.


Monday afternoon will offer a special opportunity for the younger generation of aikidoka to be inspired by Kashiwaya Sensei in a special 1-hour children's class.


Training with Kashiwaya Sensei


This learning opportunity marks Kashiwaya Sensei's 54th year in Shinshin Toitsu Aikido and is his first visit to Colorado since the 2020 Ki Aikido Teacher Training & Winter Instructors' Intensive—just a month before COVID disrupted everyone's lives.


Take advantage of this unique opportunity to train with one of the most accomplished Ki Aikido instructors and practitioners in the world today! This may well be one of the last times for you to practice with Kashiwaya Sensei in Colorado, as he will soon be retiring.


As Chief Instructor and founder of Midland Ki Federation (MKF)—comprised of more more than 25 dojos across the USA, Canada, and Brazil—Kashiwaya Sensei is still one of the few full-time Aikido professionals in the United States.


Join us as we celebrate Sensei's 72nd year of life!

Kashiwaya Sensei, long-time uchideshi (live-in apprentice) with Soshu Koichi Tohei Sensei in the late 1960's and early 1970's, has practiced for more than 50 years and taught thousands of students for nearly as long. A major emphasis in his teaching, in these last few years as Chief Instructor, is the development of the next generation of instructors and leaders for Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido Kai in Japan.
