Igarashi Dojo will be celebrating its 35th Anniversary
in 2018. I would like to express my gratitude to everyone for continuing
to provide us with their warm and gracious support in achieving this
I had considered putting off any anniversary celebration until the
40th, but I had received some comments like,“Sensei, you’re already
getting on in years, so how about celebrating at least every 5 years
? ”from people in Japan and overseas, as well. Due to popular demand,
we will be scheduling several events to celebrate our 35th Anniversary.
Many people were dismayed when it was announced that the annual Aikido
Igarashi Dojo Camp would no longer be held after 2016. We will have
a special camp as part of the 35th Anniversary Celebration. I look
forward to seeing all of you for this celebration !
