This year’s seminar continues with the theme of Takemusu Aiki. All classes will be in Vermont Aikido dojo space this year, and we must limit class attendance to 25 persons. This is in consideration of the mat space available, as well as the desire to allow each student the opportunity of receiving Mary’s unique and insightful teaching. If you are interested in broadening and deepening your Aikido practice, and in sharing instruction with this wonderful teacher, please consider attending this seminar. All levels of practice and affiliations welcome!

Advance notice of intention to attend is encouraged so that we can manage the mat space fairly for each class; pre-registration at the advance rate may be by check or money order made out to Vermont Aikido and mailed to the dojo at 274 North Winooski Ave., Burlington VT 05401.

Private Lessons available by arrangement with sensei; please refer to the attached flyer for more information. Contact Mary Heiny directly at shinkokyu at maryheiny.com.
