How to Prepare:

  • Register by Oct 2. Participants must be registered by Monday, Oct 2 to attend, and there will not be any registration during the event.

  • Bring your Bokken & Jo. Extra sets will not be available.

  • Bring a Tsuba (hand guard) for your bokken. Your bokken will need a proper-fitting tsuba, preferably in leather or rawhide for durability. If you need recommendations on where to buy one, please use the contact info below. Ryushinkan also makes and sells them and can do so if contacted at

  • No aikido uniforms for outdoor training. Dress for the activity & weather. We recommend rugged and comfortable shoes, like hiking boots or sneakers with good cushioning, since we will be on pavement.

The ground is flat, well paved, and well kept, with a large parking lot and clean bathroom house.
