Dear Lillsved Aikidoka,

First of all we hope that each and every one of you are healthy and safe. These strange times have been, and will continue to be, a tough grading for us all in the budo school of life.

Short summary:

  • The Lillsved Aikido Seminar this year has been cancelled.
  • We will do this now rather than later since we expect there to be too many restrictions in effect for it to be feasible.
  • Refunds to those who have paid will start soon.
  • Each accepted participant will have an email describing the situation in more detail.

This is by far the hardest decision we have ever had to make in the history of the seminar. The original plans were for this to be the 20'th anniversary of the Lillsved Aikido Seminar and the hopes all of us have had around it has been enormous. The support that all of you have shown us has been nothing less than fantastic. It really warms our hearts.

But we also have to face the reality where an unprecedented situation calls for all of us to act responsibly, and in this case it means making a hard decision for the good of both this community and also for the society around us.

More information will be posted on the web site as it becomes available.

Kind regards,

Jan, Jorma, Jimpa and Stefan
