Registration for our 11th annual Blue Mountains Winter Camp is now open! Come and share in this wonderful dojo tradition of a Japanese-style gasshuku where students live, eat and train together over several days in a beautiful bushland setting. The camp takes place in a secluded retreat centre with a dedicated dojo space, log fireplace, and your choice of dormitory-style accommodation or converted 1920s train carriages. Indoor and outdoor training in empty-handed and weapons-based Aikido practice is complemented with rejuvenating workshops in Shiatsu Massage and Japanese Oki Yoga. It’s always a magical and uplifting weekend, and students of any level are welcome!

Spaces are limited for safety and comfort, and the camp fills up quickly, so please register your attendance ASAP to avoid disappointment.
