San Francisco Aikikai 2022 Seminar

The San Francisco Aikikai Celebration Seminar — with Yoshimitsu Yamada Shihan, Peter Bernath Shihan, and Penny Bernath Shihan — will be the weekend of May 6-8, 2022. In addition to celebrating being back together on the mat, we are also celebrating the San Francisco Aikikai 30th Anniversary!

Please Note: To protect each other, and especially the most vulnerable members of our community:

  • Attendance will be limited, so we encourage you to register early. 

  • All attendees must be vaccinated (and boosted) against COVID-19. Proof of vaccination will be required at the door.

  •  Masks are required indoors at all times.

  • All attendees must pre-register online, there will be no walk-up registration available.

  • Sadly we can have no guests watching at the seminar this year, only registered participants may attend.

Thank you for understanding, and we look forward to celebrating with you!
