Winter Camp Info


Winter Camp is coming soon, Please note that there is a correction to the phone number for the Clarion hotel we just received. The number should be:


Also, the hotel just notified us that they will not enforce a deadline on getting the lower rate providing they have rooms available. I still wouldn’t take any chances, so register early.

See you there and please support your fellow students at the test preps!

Camp Test Prep Starts Monday, Jan. 16 -

Tis the season for test prep!

The winter session of camp test prep classes kicks off Monday, January 16 at 7 pm.

Test prep will run for 6 weeks, every Monday and Thursday night at 7 pm.

All are welcome but we will, as usual, kick it up a notch (or two). Beginners will be taken good care of so don't hesitate to come as well.

The first and last night will have video review in the 8 pm hour for baseline and progress as usual.

If you are not testing, we will need ukes of all types, so please come and support your fellow aikidoka.

Camp prep has been a long standing tradition in Rochester which, with your support, will continue to enhance everyone's quality of practice.

Thank you,

Marcella & Brian

Just before David Nachman's seminar, we had testing for some new members. Chris Williams and Bruce Xu successfully tested for 6th kyu.


Wonderful Seminar

It was a great seminar last weekend. David Nachman Sensei visited with his uke, Chris Burrell. Rochester's snow held off so we had a balmy 45 degrees for the seminar.
