Japan Relief Seminar
On the weekend of July 23rd and 24th, we are joining with other prominent Southland Aikido dojos for a benefit seminar on behalf of the victims of the recent earthquake, tsunami and nuclear incident in Japan. Five classes on both Saturday and Sunday are scheduled, with lunch provided in part by our very own professionally trained chef, John Harney Sensei. We invite all of our combined membership to support this worthwhile event, either by participating, donating money, or both. All ages welcome.

    Francis Takahashi, 7th Dan Shihan, Aikido Academy USA
    Jack Arnold, 7th Dan Shihan, Daiwa Aikido
    Dang Thong Phong, 6th Dan Shihan, Tenshinkai Aikido Westminster
    Kazuho Nishida, 6th Dan Shidoin, City Aikido of Los Angeles
    Lia Suzuki, 6th Dan, Aikido Kenkyukai Santa Barbara
    Dr. James Graves, 5th Dan Shidoin, City Aikido of Los Angeles
    Lee Lavi Ramirez, 4th Dan Shidoin, North Valley Aikikai
    Scott Howard, 4th Dan Shidoin, Whittier Aikikai
    Ray Feliciano, 4th Dan Shidoin, Pasadena Aikikai
    John Harney, 4th Dan, Aikido Academy USA

Schedule for Saturday, July 23
    9:00am: Suzuki
    10:15: Feliciano
    11:30: Nishida
    12:30: Lunch
    2:00pm: Arnold

    10:15: Phong
    11:30: Ramirez
    12:30: Lunch
    2:00pm: Harney
    3:15: Takahashi

Suggested Contribution
    2 days: $75
    1 day: $40
    Additional contributions are welcomed and tax deductible

We do not know what type of attendance we will have, but we will be putting down our full complement of 92 mats for the event. Prior registration or rsvp will be most helpful and appreciated.
Of course, taking full and rare advantage of quality Aikido instruction is a major plus, but frankly, we are looking to collect as much money as possible to forward to Aikikai Foundation in Japan for their discrimination of usage for the unfortunate victims in Japan. We do believe that any donation you make is tax deductible, but you should check with your accountant to be sure.

GREAT RESULTS! Over $4200 was collected and wired to Japan in October, 2011!

Thanks to all who participated!
