Dear Aikido Community,
The New York Aikikai will not be holding a Christmas Seminar this year. We are concerned about Yamada Sensei’s exposure to rising COVID cases and rapidly spreading new variants in the crowded confines of the NYC dojo. Yamada Sensei will be teaching his regular Saturday class on December 17th followed by dan tests for NYA members and students from local affiliated dojos. There will be no party or social gathering at the dojo after the tests. We hope to be able to resume our Christmas Seminar tradition in 2023.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
