A little earlier than usual this year is the BAF Summer School, once again being held in Chester.
This is a time for practice with the visiting instructor from Hombu Dojo, Japan, as well as a variety of senior instructors from the UK.
Held in the university in Chester this brings clubs from all over the UK as well as international visitors. Summer school is as big a social event as it is for Aikido practice.
As the main opportunity for senior gradings (1st kyu and above) Chester is the place to see what may expected in a few grades time, or to take the step and achieve your next goal. (Grading applications for yudansha have to be submitted by Spring Course). Of course 6th kyu to 2nd kyu gradings may also be taken at Summer School.
We usually stop club practice for the week while our instructors are at summer school – so come and join the fun!
