What to Bring

This seminar will be held at the Green Ridge Recreational Center. See our schedule page for map and phone information.

Green Ridge is a large recreational facility with dressing rooms, showers, and day use lockers. Mats will be down at least 30 minutes prior to the seminar for stretching. If you do not have your own, we have dojo weapons (jo,bokken,tanto) that can be used if needed.

Who is this for?

Roanoke Budo Kai has long encouraged it’s students to travel and train at other dojos, in fact it is a requirement for advancement. We are an unaffiliated dojo and welcome all aikidoka.

If you have been waiting for the opportunity to learn from Sorrentino Sensei, or just want to visit the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, come on out and join us.

Just Aikido?

At our dojo we train hard, but we are also very supportive and have a lot of fun. There will undoubtedly be a group of us going out for lunch and relaxation after the seminar, and you are welcome to join us. We’d love the company and a chance to show off Roanoke a bit. Drop us a note using our contact page if you have any questions.

Also bring your swimming suit as there is an indoor pool and jacuzzi that will feel great after the workout.(Note that for the pool Green Ridge has a $9 adult and $7 child one day use charge).

Traveling Far?

If you are looking for accommodations for overnight stay in Roanoke, feel free to contact us for suggestions, there are many options very near where the seminar is being held.

We look forward to seeing you at the seminar!
