Riviera Aikido Community Training
Here in the Evolutionary Aikido Community, we have a small circle of dojos that we refer to as the Riviera Aikido Community. These dojos circle Lake Geneva (Lac Léman) and consist of Aikido Montreux, Aikido Vevey, Aikido St Gingolph, and our new dojo Aikido Lausanne. Every first Wednesday of the month we do a communal training with all of the dojos together. This is an opportunity to for all of the students to connect and train together. It is also a chance for the teachers to collaborate and support each other’s work. Getting outside of our bubbles as teachers and having our students come together gives a direct experience that we belong to larger community and that our paths are shared. We are lucky to be so close to each other and have the chance to train together in this way. This is also the inspiration behind the “Nomad Seminars” held within the EAC. Having the chance to train, collaborate, and share is a wonderful opportunity and important for us to take advantage of.
