Intensive Training Programs
With the goal of developing our membership and high level international instructors, Aikido Renshinkai offers a range of programs from 2 and 4 week all-inclusive training packages, to our 11 month Full Time Intensive Program (senshusei course) where students can earn a blackbelt, become instructors, and experience what it’s like to be a Japanese style apprentice (uchi deshi) at a traditional dojo.
Full Time Intensive Program
Shidosha Yosei Full Course (Senshusei Course)
This is an 11 month program running from the beginning of April to the end of February the following year. It is a physically intense program that stresses proper form, technique, and teaching methodology. Aikido experience is not mandatory and mix of student levels from beginner to black belt is normal. Students that make it to the end of the course successfully will have the opportunity to take a black belt examination and, if successful, also test for certification as an Aikido Renshinkai Examiner.
Spring 2017 applications are currently being accepted. Please contact us via the contact page.
