Herzogenhorn 2020
April 14, 2020

Dear Aikidoka,

Europe is in the grip of the Covid-19 pandemic, and on many fronts, extending to the private and professional environment, you are currently involved in the effects of the fight against the spread of the virus.

Sadly, this also means that we have to deal with the question whether the summer courses with Shimizu Sensei will be possible at all, as a result of the current travel restrictions and contact bans. The Herzogenhorn Training Center is currently closed until May 8th, 2020. What will happen after that date, is not yet evident and depends on further developments.

We agree with Shimizu Sensei and the Herzogenhorn that we will continue to monitor developments in April so that we can make an informed decision at the beginning of May.

Until then, as organizers of the seminars at Herzogenhorn, we have the following request:

If you have not yet registered, but would like to participate, if the implementation should be possible, then please register your interest with us now or as soon as possible.

Conversely, the following applies: anyone who has already registered but can no longer participate as a result of the development of the pandemic, even if the course should take place, should also contact us now or as soon as possible.

We need this information to be able to make a well-informed decision that takes account of the complexity of the situation, and ask for your understanding and support.
