Local Seminars and Events

Northern California (and the Bay Area in particular) has one of the highest concentrations of high level Aikido Senseis outside of Japan.  As such, there are many Aikido seminars that take place throughout the year.  As a service to our Aikido community, we will try to list the any upcoming Aikido seminars here in the Northern California area.  Please send information about aikido events to Community@rosevilleaikidocenter.com for posting to this site.

This information is listed purely as a service to our community and to the larger family of Aikido practitioners.  We highly recommend you contact the individual, hosting dojos if you have any questions or concerns.
