Updated Post on 2016 Birankai Summer Camp:
Buy your plane tickets now: Master Aikido instructors Kristina Varjan Shihan, Barbara Britton Shihan and Gina Zarrilli Sensei are giving a special seminar next month at Valley Aikido in Northampton, Mass.
The event, Nov. 14-15, is a tribute to and fundraiser for Lorraine DiAnne Shihan, a pioneering instructor in the Northeast. DiAnne Shihan and the three guest instructors all have deep ties to the Aikido styles of Yamada Sensei, Kanai Sensei and Chiba Sensei and this promises to be a landmark event!
More info on the seminar at Valleyaikido.org.
Newly posted video at BiranOnline includes clips from Varjan Shihan at 2015 and 2013 Birankai Summer Camps, along with clips from Zarrilli Sensei’s 2014 seminar at Boston Aikikai. More clips to come and see you on the mat in Northampton.
