This seminar is the only one in the world where you can train 9 days in a row with Hiroshi IKEDA Shihan.

Train in a new way, discover a more profound aikido, the internal power and connection that will change your way of practice.

Located in Le Vigan, small town in the middle of the mountains and forest of the Cévennes (south of France), this seminar takes place one hour from Montpellier and Nimes, in a beautiful place to train and rewind.


An aikido seminar is not only a succession of training. It is a space of exchange, of discovery and questioning. It is an opportunity to make friends, resource yourself and explore what happen inside and around us.

The International Aikido Seminar of Le Vigan is one of these privileged space, where more than 200 aikido practitioners from all around the world meet, build strong relationship of sharing and fraternity.


These are nine days of training, of seeking and self-questioning, proper timing for relaxation, but also nine days of parties and laughs.
