This is by far our most important event, every year around the first week in August the B.A.F. holds its week long summer school. This is something of a showcase event attended by many aikidoka from the U.K. and abroad (including the Russian Aikido Federation, the Netherlands, France, Germany, and Japan to name but a few). The Star attraction each year is a visiting Shihan from the Honbu Aikikai Foundation, most commonly over recent years Mr. Yukimitsu Kobayashi (7th Dan Hombu), Mr. Shigeru Sugawara (7th Dan Hombu), and Takeshi Kanazawa (7th Dan Hombu) providing excellent instruction and insight to Aikido.

There is also the opportunity to attend classes with our Technical Director Mr. Minoru Kanetsuka Shihan (8th Dan Hombu) with his eclectic style of practice, and Mr. Matthew Holland Shihan (7th Dan Hombu) of the S.A.F. with his direct and honest approach, both who deliver superb classes.

The Senior Instructors Mr. Ian McClarence (6th Dan Hombu), and Mr. Don Morgan (6th Dan Hombu) with an accumulation of over 80 years experience between them. Not forgetting that it is an opportunity to attend classes of the other B.A.F. Shidoin each offering there own facets of the many sided jewel that is Aikido.

Summer School Is where all the B.A.F. senior grading are taken under the quality control of the visiting instructor.
