Training the future of aikido!

April 22nd, 2023 • 1:00–4:30 pm Doors open 12:30pm @ One Dojo Boulder

Sliding scale admission | Choose the price that suits your budget


The Aikido University Workshop is back on again!

This year we have instructors from the local universities teach to encourage student participation.

This includes Eric Dobbs of the CU Aikido class, who was a great hit last year; Nathaniel Gilbert, who leads class at Naropa; and David Ruttinger of the CSM Aikido Club.

Each instructor has a distinct approach and lineage, making for an exciting lineup!

Train under great teachers and help accomplish three main goals:

Bringing the community together – We have a common passion for aikido. It's a great joy to be able to share it with people who are outside our usual training group.

An event that is accessible to students – By making the event free for and tailored to university students, we encourage the next generation of aikidoka!

Social good – People who practice aikido tend to be socially conscious. This event allows them to come together around this intention. Part of the proceeds from this event will go to an Earth-supportive non-profit.


In Honor of Earth Day

This year part of the proceeds will go to a local environmental non-profit with a global impact, WILD.

Since 1974, WILD has put respect for nature at the center of the global leadership community and simultaneously stewarded coordinated action for the protection of Earth’s life-giving biodiversity.



Students: FREE! Please bring student ID

Non-Students: $25-45 sliding scale. Choose the rate that fits your budget. Proceeds subsidize student fees, fund an Earth-friendly non-profit, help us to put on events like this in the future, and support the host dojo.

Spectators welcome!
