ASU students preparing for their shodan, nidan, and sandan examinations are invited to join us for our fifth annual Yudansha Prep Workshop series. These Workshops have helped dozens of candidates have more confidence, build friendships with their testing peers, and to perform tests they were proud of. Participants will experience “test level” pressure in a safe feedback environment, and receive instruction on technical execution and composure. Participation is limited to members of the Aikido Schools of Ueshiba, and to the first 30 registrants ranked 1st kyu and higher. Visitors are encouraged to bring weapons, although a limited supply of Dojo weapons will be available. Students may bring videocameras if they wish their mock tests to be recorded.
With over 75 combined years of Aikido experience, Senseis Guy, Don and Melissa each hold the ASU rank of yondan (4th degree black belt) and are all members of the Ueshiba Juku.
