We are happy to announce that Romania will host the Aikido International
Youth Seminar 2018 this summer.
Eiji Katsurada 6th Dan Hombu Dojo Shihan will conduct the trainings. The
event will take place in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, during the 20th-22nd of
The invited Aikido teacher is the Coordinator of the Hombu Dojo Youth
Departament, in Tokyo, Japan. He is a very good teacher, who creates
interesting ways of determining the children to love and practice Aikido.
These are just some of the reasons for all of us to be thrilled that he is
the one to lead the trainings of the seminar.
The classes are dedicated to young Aikidoka, aged 9 to 18 years old. There
will be two groups of participants so that the trainings can be most
effective for everybody.
There will be morning and afternoon classes on Friday and Saturday and a
morning class on Sunday. Parents or other people can watch the trainings
from the balcony of the hall.
On Saturday evening there will be a big Sayounara Party. There are several
surprises that we have already prepared for this joyful moment.
Musubi Dojo will be the training hall of the seminar. This place was
specially built for Aikido a few years ago. The big building where the
dojo is also includes the restaurant for the Saturday party – Nobori

Camin XXI). There are 3 beds in a room, each room with a bathroom. This
campus is just behind the dojo building. It takes 2-3 minutes to walk from
one building to another.
