Miles Kessler seminar 2021

This November Miles Kessler sensei will be giving a seminar in Arnhem, the Netherlands. Two years ago Miles gave a beautiful seminar. This year he is visiting Arnhem again.

The seminar is open for all levels of aikido. High level aikidoka’s will be able to learn more in depth about the 3 stages of mastery in Aikido, Shu Ha Ri.

But for all attendees regardless of level it will certainly be a beautiful experience of the deep connecting aikido Miles is teaching.

    Accommodations for your stay

    There is a holiday park just outside of Arnhem, only 10 min by car:
    It is located directly opposite of the beautiful National Park Hoge Veluwe, were you can hike for a day.

    A little bit further down the road, approximately 20 – 25 minutes drive there is another one:

    Then there is the Rijnhotel:
    Not the cheapest, but located with a view on the river the Rijn.

    If you like to stay in the middle of the center, but next to the Park Sonsbeek, check out . Limited availability, but it would be my preferred spot if I had to stay in Arnhem. The city center around the corner, the beautiful English style Sonsbeek Park as you backyard. And only 5 min walk from the train station.

    Of course you can also check Airbnb
