2020 Aikido Summit Postponed

Update 3/19/2020:

We are working with our incredible lineup of instructors and the Denver Buddhist Temple to identify an alternate weekend to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Aikido Summit and will announce the new date as soon as possible.

Refunds are available by request; for those of you who have already registered and are willing to keep your registration for the future dates, we greatly appreciate that and we are working to arrange a bonus training session in recognition of the disruption this has caused. If not, we fully understand given the current situation, so please contact us here or at denveraikikai@comcast.com.

Update 3/16/2020:

In light of the recent developments with COVID-19 and the ban on large group gatherings, we have no choice but to postpone the 20th Aikido Summit, March 27 & 28, 2020 at the Denver Buddhist Temple.  We are working with all the wonderful instructors and the Denver Buddhist Temple to identify the best possible dates to reschedule the Summit. Denver Aikikai will continue to do its utmost to provide you with a safe, secure and successful Aikido Summit at the earliest date possible.  We appreciate your patience during these unprecedented times created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We understand that you may also have several questions for us.  We need some time to create solutions and develop our plan for moving forward. We will gladly share those details with you as soon as we have them. Please watch this page or connect with us on Facebook for those details.

Be safe and take care. We look forward to seeing you at the 20th Aikido Summit when we reconvene later this year.
