Training Seminars
To further training of Aikidoka (Aikido students) through standardized instruction and intensive, focused training, the AAA and AAI offer seminars at a variety of levels and on a variety of subjects including beginning and advanced techniques for both empty-hand and traditional weapons, tactical applications, and therapeutic bodywork. Seminar instructors include shihan (master instructor), shihan-dai (assistant shihan), and AAA Teaching Committee members.

National and Regional Training Camps
The AAA and AAI Training Camps are large regional gatherings of Aikido practitioners for training, black belt tests, and personal exchange. Held in different parts of the world, the AAA and AAI Camps are major opportunities for practitioners to network and improve themselves through intensive Aikido practice and when possible, through participating in on-site lodging and meals.

Instructor Training and Certification Seminars
Consistent, quality professional instruction is necessary for the long-term growth of Aikido arts. AAA and AAI offer an organized method of instruction which is documented in an instructor’s manual and promoted through instructors’ seminars and the certification of instructor levels. AAA and AAI’s instructional program, instituted by the late President and Chief Instructor Shihan Toyoda, is promulgated under the guidance of Aikido Doshu M. Ueshiba’s teaching and the philosophy of Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba. AAA offers its National Instructor Seminar every year in Chicago, and alternating years on the West and East coasts.
