On Friday 2nd February, Andrew Last Sensei submitted his resignation from Aiki Kai Australia to pursue his own direction in Aikido. We thank him for many years of dedication, service and commitment, especially in running Point Cook Dojo.
These things happen sadly in martial arts, and we wish him well for the future.
In line with the notice period of his resignation, Point Cook Dojo (PCD) will be closing effective March 3, 2024, as there will no longer be an Aiki Kai Australia authorised and appointed instructor there.
All days of training at PCD will count toward Aiki Kai Australia grading prerequisites up until that date. After March 3, 2024 there will be no recognition of training days at PCD.
The nearest dojo geographically to Point Cook is St Albans (click here for address and training days). All students who are current Aiki Kai Australia members are welcome to train there.
