Service Days

Two or three times a year, members of Two Rivers Aikikai plan a day of service at local non profits to support our community.

We suspend classes for the Service Day in order to devote our energy to helping our sister non profit organizations.

On December 16, 2017, we went to the Oregon Food Bank for the morning to help package 31,169 pounds of potatoes into 5 to 7 lb bags.

What are Seminars?

Seminars are intensive training workshops that are one, two or three days long and usually take place over a weekend. Two Rivers Aikikai hosts Aikido Seminars twice a year in the Spring and Fall. We will choose instructors who have had an impact on our training over the years, from near and far. We encourage our students to participate in seminars at Two Rivers Aikikai and at other dojos where they can practice a variety of styles and strengthen their foundations. Seminars offer all of us a way to keep up to date with the changes taking place in Aikido and Iaido as they evolve.At the Oregon Food Bank
Nine members of Two Rivers Aikikai went to San Francisco Aikikai for an Aikido Seminar featuring Yoshimitsu Yamada Shihan and Peter Bernath Shihan in Janbuary 2018.

On March 18, 2006, Two Rivers Aikikai hosted the First Annual Portland Friendship Seminar and donated 398 pounds of food for the Oregon Food Bank! Close to 80 members of Aikido dojos in the Portland area practiced together at Two Rivers Aikikai on that Saturday afternoon as a benefit for the Oregon Food Bank. Seven different instructors taught 30 minute segments over the course of the afternoon. In lieu of seminar fees, participants brought 398 pounds of food and $301 in cash donations for OFB. The wonderful atmosphere and enthusiastic energy on the mat all afternoon attested to the spirit of Aikido in Portland dojos. The members of Two Rivers Aikikai appreciate the contributions everyone brought to our dojo. We look forward to seeing you on the mat again soon!
