2017 Midland Ki Federation Summer Seminar with Shinichi Tohei Sensei

Shinichi Tohei Sensei 2017 Seminar Midland Ki Federation

June 22 – 25, 2017 | Boulder & Westminster, Colorado

Midland Ki Federation, in collaboration with Rocky Mountain Ki Society, is honored to host Shinichi Tohei Sensei, President and Chief Instructor of Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido Kai (Headquarters of Mind-Body Unified Aikido). Tohei Sensei will be teaching a special summer seminar in the beautiful campus of the University of Colorado–Boulder, as well as in the RMKS-Westminster dojo (about 30 minutes from the CU-Boulder campus).

Since childhood, Shinichi Tohei Sensei was guided and taught by his father Soshu Koichi Tohei Sensei, the 10th dan Aikido Master. Today, he spends most of his time spreading the teachings of Shinshin Toitsu Aikido in Japan and overseas.

This special summer seminar also marks the 40th anniversary of the founding of Rocky Mountain Ki Society in Colorado by Koichi Kashiwaya Sensei in 1977. There will be a commemorative social event on Saturday evening to celebrate this occasion (see below).

Shinshin Toitsu Aikido Kai members who are interested in participating in this camp, please inform your Chief Instructors, as well as Midland Ki Federation.

There are several ways to get to and from DIA to CU Boulder.


The least expensive choice is the RTD Skyride AB bus, at $9 each way. Very comfortable and dependable bus ride. The closest stop to CU boulder is Broadway & Euclid (not available at all times. See schedule for stop times).


The second least expensive method is the GreenRide Shuttle. $28 for 1 person and $40 for 2 people to the Boulder HUB on 48th St and Baseline. Not too far of a drive to/from CU Boulder. LyftUber or ZTrip can get you the rest of the way.


Alternatively, you may opt to take a cab via LyftUber or ZTrip. These can be affordable when sharing the ride with other people who may be going to CU Boulder also.


If you are renting a car at DIA, or coming from other areas via your own vehicle and do not have access to GPS on your phone, you may want to download and print this handy PDF with driving directions from several locations, including DIA.
