Yamada Sensei 50th Anniversary Seminar


Thanks to all who attended this very special seminar! Aikidoists traveled to Chicago from all over the world to train together and celebrate Y. Yamada Shihan's 50th Anniversary of teaching Aikido in the US. In 2014, Yamada Sensei is conducting a series of seminars across North America to celebrate his 50th Anniversary and the MAC was honored to host him and Peter Bernath Shihan in Chicago on April 26th & 27th.

The mat was full of old friends and new, all thrilled to be a part of this event. Excellent instruction during the day met with hearty celebration at night. The Saturday party featured food and fun, including a special cake for Yamada Shihan and even a special recognition straight from the desk of Chicago's own mayor, Rahm Emanuel.

We hope to see everyone again soon! Thanks for making this seminar one for the ages.
