USAF Summer Camp

Every year the United States Aikido Federation (USAF) runs a week long series of seminars called Summer Camp.  Since Capitol Hill Aikikai recently affiliated with the USAF, many of us decided to attend.  This year, in particular, was special as it was celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the New York Aikikai led by Yamada Sensei, a direct student of O-Sensei and the President of the USAF.  Summer Camp was packed with aikido classes from morning to evening (even 6 AM classes for early birds!) and we all were able to get a lot of practice in, make new friends, and reconnect with old ones.  We'll be looking forward to next year!
