Due to the enthusiastic interest in attending our March seminar with Jan Nevelius Shihan, we been decided to open registration for 10 additional participants!
To make this possible, we have decided to hold Saturday and Sunday’s sessions at Aikido Nord du Lac in Mandeville (located at 2050 Spartan Drive).
Friday’s evening session will be still be held in our dojo, along with an extra jo session Thursday at 6 p.m. (We will provide jo’s for our out-of-town guests.)
To commute to the larger venue, Aikido Nord du Lac in Mandeville, we will meet at our dojo at 8 a.m. on Saturday, and 9 a.m. Sunday to make the 45 minute commute over the Pontchartrain Cauesway bridge and to carpool/give rides to the out-of-town and local attendees without cars.
People are coming from all over the country as well as from Europe to practice with this wonderful teacher and Aikidoist.
If you have not booked a spot and would still like to join us, please purchase your spot here. These additional spots won’t last long.
More information about the seminar:
We would like to welcome you to New Orleans for a fantastic weekend of Aikido with Jan Nevelius Shihan (6th Dan Aikikai from Vanadis Aikido Dojo in Stockholm, Sweden!) Nevelius Shihan is a truly masterful teacher and practitioner of this art who currently teaches throughout Europe, North America, and in the Middle East. His emphasis is on connection and soft ukemi.
You can get a sense of Jan Sensei’s soft but powerful style of practice and teaching here.
We are happy to announce that we have expanded our dojo viewing area and changing rooms since last year and will be able to more comfortably accommodate everyone.
We will have capacity for 40 Aikidoka, and we strongly encourage pre-registration to reserve your spot.
We would be happy to help our out-of-town guests with housing. There will be a limited number of spaces available with our dojo members, and it is also possible to stay in our dojo (with shower, refrigerator, and microwave). To arrange this or for recommendations of hotels, hostels, and bed and breakfasts near the dojo please contact us.
Please note: we are very pleased to announce that Jan Sensei also will be teaching a special jo class on Thursday evening from 6 to 7:30 p.m. This class will be offered separately from the seminar and will be by donation.
We are also very excited to announce that Nevelius Shihan will also be conducting yudansha tests from 12:15 to 2:00 pm on Saturday.
There will also be a seminar party and celebration on Saturday at 7 p.m. More details to come.
Further information is available on our Facebook event page.
We warmly invite you to come join us to deeply study Aiki with a highly-gifted teacher who know how to help his students come into a state of greater awareness, joy, and freedom in their bodies and minds.
And when not on the mats, New Orleans remains a city of great celebration…of life, relationship, food, and the spirit(s) of “do whatcha wanna”.
