We're thrilled to announce the return of Kashiwaya Sensei this summer to Colorado.

The Aikido Jo-Bokken Camp is open to all individuals with basic Aikido experience, regardless of affiliation or style.

Kashiwaya Sensei, former Chief Instructor and founder of Rocky Mountain Ki Society in 1977 and Midland Ki Federation (MKF), our USA organization which connects us to Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido Kai in Japan.

Now retired from Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido Kai, he continues to place a strong emphasis on nurturing the next generation of Ki Aikidoka practitioners and leaders.

Students worldwide eagerly anticipate the chance to train with this dynamic and spirited teacher. Kashiwaya Sensei's teaching style encourages students to refine and explore their arts continuously.

His compassion and dedication to his students have inspired many to integrate these arts into their daily lives. Through his efforts over the last five decades, thousands of people have been introduced to the teachings of Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido Kai and Tohei Sensei.

If you're unable to make it, please consider making a supporting contribution to this event here.
