We are super pleased to bring to Squamish this unique way to ring in the New Year direct from the Aikikai World Headquarters in Japan.

Every year, the Aikikai World Headquarters hosts a very special tradition called "Etsunen Geiko" (year-end practice). Aikido practitioners gather from far and wide to train together during the last half hour of the year and first half hour of the next. After class they celebrate the start of the year with light snacks and Japanese sake.
