Calgary 2023 Shidoin Seminar with guest instructors Ben Peacock 5th Dan & Grant Babin, 4th Dan (including BigRock Aikikai instructors Steve Erickson 6th Dan, Kevin Ellwood 5th Dan & Raoul Dub 4th Dan)
Please check out the class information below to find out when the instructors will be teaching!
For the first time, our dojo is hosting a Shidoin seminar. "Shidoin" are the certified instructors of the Canadian Aikido Federation. They are not yet Shihan (master level teachers) like the Exam Committee Members but they are working toward this level of teaching and technical skill. Shidoin are the up and coming instructors within our Canadian Aikido community. I'm very excited to have assembled a group of my peers to help deliver this seminar. I know they will do a great job and I hope you are all looking forward to it as well.
