Be sure to check out these new video clips from the Eastshore Aikikai Friendship Seminar, held on Dec. 2, 2012, in Richmond, Calif. This Birankai Aikido seminar featured Elizabeth Lynn Shihan of Eastshore Aikikai and J.D. Sandoval Sensei of Hayward Aikido.
Facebook is more than cute cat photos and status updates — you can help support your local Birankai dojo as well. Facebook activity helps promote small businesses like Aikido dojos and helps our worldwide community stay in touch.
If you have a dojo and haven’t taken the plunge yet, here are Facebook’s guidelines on to get your page started.
If you’re already on Facebook, take the time to “like” our dojos if you haven’t already (just click on the ‘like button). Also don’t be shy about leaving notes of support or thanks after seminars and other events — some of us don’t update our pages as much as we should!
Here are some Facebook pages to get you started:
San Diego Aikikai
Aikido Institute of San Francisco
Bucks County Aikido
New Tampa Aikido
Huron Valley Aikikai
See you on Facebook!
Save the date: 2013 Birankai North America Aikido Summer Camp will be held at San Francisco State University on July 5-10.
