To be surrounded by people who accept, love and support you all week. Deep relationships build in a short amount of time. I look forward to seeing my Aikido family every year. It feels like a Family Reunion.
This is such a wonderful week filled with not only amazing aikido but amazing conversations, food, and visiting at the tub at night. The people who attend really make it a treat.
This is a rare opportunity to train for 5-6 hours a day with lots of great people and enjoy the amenities Granlibakken has to offer. It is awesome.
Skilled instructors, splendid and varied training, spectacular setting . . . altogether a superb week of immersion in practice. Looking forward to the next time!
This retreat is the best I ever attended. The format allows for most intensive study and learning of Aikido principles, techniques, and philosophy.
The retreat is a valuable way to make new friendships and build a stronger community.
The best martial arts week of my year!
This retreat is run by some of the most generous and supportive Senseis you will find in Aikido. Their spirits lead the way and hold a great atmosphere for the entire week. Very inspiring.

The retreat was the best week I've had in years. A solid week of great training with fantastic people at a lovely location with great food.David Socha
The Aiki Summer Retreat experience is beyond words! Seven days of all the peace, love, and harmony a person can stand, with the most welcoming community of people imaginable, a teaching staff that is world-class, and the fanciest facilities of any martial arts camp I have ever attended!Alan Best
Camp was wonderful this year and it's set to just get better. The deep learning, joy and comeraderie was palpable both on and off the mat. The teachers were all excellent as was the opportunity to either mentor or be mentored as a teacher. The Aiki Summer Retreat is setting the ground work for Aikido to expand its reach in the next generation.Sara Snell

The 2018 Aiki Summer Retreat was magical. The instructors were excellent, the space was fantastic, and people were wonderful on and off the mat.Thomas Klein
Aikido is the practice of Harmony at the source. Harmony is Mind, Body, and Spirit all together --yours, mine, and ours. I have never experienced a more joyous gathering of Aikido-ka all practicing Harmony together day after day than at the Aiki Summer Retreat. The entire experience was absolutely fabulous! Thank you.David Drake
If you did nothing to change the retreat, it would still be perfect. Some of the best training by some of the finest teachers there are!Shawn Ellingson
