Mimuro Sensei Aikido course - Sunday 26th June 2022

Urgent Update

Urgent Message to everyone who will be attending the LA Aikido course with Mimuro tomorrow - Sunday 26th Jun.
Unfortunately, Sensei recently tested positive for Covid and may not be able to take the course on Sunday He is still hoping for a negative LFT.
However, it has been decided that the course will proceed and be run as a standard Lancashire Aikikai course.
It is hoped that Sensei's wife Cathy Mimuro (5th Dan), will take part of the course, supported by LA instructors.
The course delivery and content will be based on Mimuro Sensei aikido principles. We are also hoping that Sensei will be able to be present at the course and view from a safe distance but this will depend on how Sensei is feeling on the day.
We would hope that everyone who has pre-booked, will still attend to support the course. However, we will understand if visitors, who are attending specifically to train under Mimuro Sensei, would prefer a refund. Please let us know and this will be arranged.
For those who do attend, we shall be offering a discount based on the normal LA course fee. This will be arranged as soon as possible. Please bear with us.
We hope to see as many of you as possible tomorrow.
