We are pleased to announce that Tony Hind Sensei will be coming to Squamish November 26th. Hind Sensei is a 6th degree black belt who lived in Japan for over 12 years training extensively at the Aikikai Hombu Dojo. He started and ran what is probably still the largest kids program in the world while he lived there. He is the Technical Director of the Canadian Aikido Association and Chief Instructor at the East Van Aikikai.
I've had the privilege of training under Hind Sensei now for well over 10 years and worked under him in Tokyo for several of those.
We will also be celebrating one of his senior students' recent promotion to 4th dan. Steve Watson and I came up the ranks of Aikido together and it's a pleasure to have this opportunity to honor him. Steve is the head instructor for the Abbotsford Aikikai and I have the privilege of practicing with him most Sundays at Hind Sensei's dojo in East Vancouver.
We are expecting guests from Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, Victoria and Salt Spring Island to be in attendance. Please come out and take advantage of this opportunity to learn and train with some high level practitioners.
