Winter Retreat, June 22-24, 2012
Arakai Tea Estate, Bellthorpe
Welcome to our mid-winter retreat, traditionally a time for celebrating the start of natures new year, with the return of the sun and the coming growth of spring. Its a terrific opportunity to come time together as a dojo and for our own renewal.
Please join us for a fully catered weekend of rustic style food with ingredients sourced from the Arakai tea estates’s own garden, cosy fires and bracing mountain air, and plenty of time for a little aiki on the side. Partners and families are welcome.
Just 1.5hrs north of Brisbane is the Arakai Tea Estate, near Bellthorpe. Bring a tent or sleep in the main room, it’s up to you. Places are limited, though day trippers are welcome.
Practice will be led by Danny and Alison. 5, 4-dan, Aikido Yuishinkai. Alison sensei is an original student of Williams and kumijo affectionardo since the 90’s
