New: Ryanair is flying from Stansted airport at very low prices, Thomson fly from most airports in the UK on different days of the week, EasyJet from Gatwick on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

What do you get out of this possible life changing experience.
We start at 7.30 am with a soft and gentle form of Yoga to stretch the body slowly helping to understand how we can get more from our bodies leading to long term health benefits that can be carried on once you return home. Then time is spent on different forms of Meditation that is enjoyable and enlightening, how to overcome our busy mind taking us to the point of understanding what deep inner peace can provide in the future if development and study is continued, lastly looking at the weapons of Aikido taking us up to breakfast. This covers two two and half hours.
After breakfast light duties are carried out by deshi helping Sensei, followed by lunch. After lunch a rest period/beach or relaxing.
Early evening deshi will train themselves or with one of the top teachers available. Sensei will take his class. Ending the day with meditation or relaxation. This format is carried out each day except Sundays when it is a complete day off and will be at deshi's choice. We do not ask you to arrive on any special day or leave; this will be up to you.
The cost of the deshi includes board, training, bedding. In the price for the main weeks deshi it will also include, main meals at lunch times on most days. Some days will be at deshi's own costs, plus breakfast when training at the beach, this is at the deshi's own cost.
Cost for any one weeks stay will only cost £225 per week. MAIN DESHI WEEKS COST IS £425
Those who have been many times can give you information on how much overall you will need to allow for in costs, but this normally depends on how you wish to live while at the Dojo.
A £100 none returnable deposit is required from you, as places are limited. At least one months notice is required before deshi if cancelation is confirmed, if not Sensei will ask you to pay the full amount due to others loosing out on having this wonderful opportunity to train. Sadly this has happened in the past and this is why we must now be strict with those who do not follow the Aikido true path of being fully committed to honesty.
The main deshi week will as normal include food, accommodation and training. Flights are extra but collection and return to and from the airport in Kefalonia for the deshi will be taken care of by Sensei
