2017 Summer Newsletter

Wow!  It has been an explosive start to 2017!

As you know, 2017 marks our 20th anniversary. To highlight this occasion, we are having many events this year to celebrate this milestone.

In January, the Warriorfit leadership program changed its format from an eight week course, to a weekly ongoing 90 minute class.  It runs on Saturday mornings from 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.

In February, Sensei Bindner was invited to Montreal to teach two seminars to members of the Montreal Police Service. Both seminars, Aikido, and Aiki-Jitsu Tactics, were very successful!  Sempai Marty accompanied Sensei on his trip.

In March, Sensei Bindner travelled once again to San Diego, California, to train with his sensei, Shihan Payet of  Japan.  While in California, Sensei taught Aikido seminars at two dojos, one located in Encinitas and one in Del Mar.  In Encinitas, Sensei had the privilege of training at the Sealfit Academy Headquarters with Mark Divine, in Sealfit, and Catherine Divine in Kokoro Yoga.  What a life changing experience!  Sempai Marty also accompanied Sensei on this trip.

In April, ANTC launched the 20th anniversary design T-shirts.  They are still available for purchase at the front desk.

In May, we had a visit from the 97th Beavers who came to train and learn about Aikido.

In June, the attendance is sold out for the WAVE seminar (Saturday, June 3rd) on self-protection in violent encounters.  Topics in the seminar will include psychology, physiology, and fear management in stressful situations. Also, we have a special “padded attacker” in attendance to help us with our training.


Kids 1st Day is Fri., June 9th, (10-10:45 am). This is a chance for children of our city to find out what Aikido is about.

Saturday, June 10th is our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu seminar, taught by Sensei Bindner’s B.J.J. teacher, Dragan Konjevic, from Kitchener. 10:30am-12:30pm


June is Aikido testing month for two of our locations:  HQ (Hyde Park) dojo on Wednesday, the 14th, and Byron on Thursday, the 15th. The last day of classes and graduation for the Byron location is Thursday, June 22nd.  At this location only, we will take a break for the summer and resume on Thursday, September 21st.

July 5th marks our school’s actual anniversary date. On this day in 1997, Sensei Bindner taught his first class to fellow executive protection personnel. Since then, the rest, as they say, is history.

From July 10th-14th, we are very excited to hold our first international “Kenshusei” intense Aikido training camp for adults. We have people travelling from the United States and Canada to train for this special event.

Watch for the next kids’ movie matinee.  Coming very soon!

In the fall of 2017, ANTC’s first Human Performance and Leadership Summit will take place.  We will have special guest lectures in this grand event. If you are interested in unlocking your human potential, accelerating your performance, and forging mental toughness, this will be an event you do not want to miss.

Thank you for your support and encouragement, as we celebrate our 20th year anniversary!
