Samurai Summer Camp is back!!!


With a great success from last year, and with a popular demand, our “Saumrai Summer Camp” is back for the second time. This is an outdoor Aikido and camping event for the Shoshinkan juniors for ever 8 years of age.

We had a great event last year, full of activities, such as Weapon training outdoors, Absailing, Archery, Samurai orienteering, Fireworks, bonfire and more! We finished off with an epic Samurai battle at the end. which can be found on the youtube link.

We are planning to hold the event on the weekend of 16th – 18th August at Drumhill campsite in Little Eaton, Derby. (Same venue as last year. 30mins drive from Nottingham) There will be more exciting events and activities to get children involved in samurai like activities.


We know under the current economic circumstances it may be challenging for some people to take their kids away this year so we have searched around for a great activity weekend themed around Aikido!

Also as the school summer holiday is a long break and children need to have their time filled constructively the long weekend can be used as compliment to the main family holiday.

The cost for the event will be £130 per child for 3 days including the food and drinks. The only thing we would ask of your children is sleeping bag, change of clothes, and the transport to the venue.

The place is limited to 20 places on first come first served basis. And unfortunately there is an age restriction of 8 years and above. (Due to age restirctions on activities at the campsite.)

We understand that this is not a cheap event. So we accept installments paid on the following schedule dates

1st installment £50 : 31st May

• 2nd installment £40 : 30th June

• 3rd installment £40 : 31st July

Please make the cheque payable to Tadashi Narita.

For cancellation we will refund the 70% of the full amount. (£40 is non-refundable)

Upon the completion of the camp your children will receive an extra tag for training, and a certificate of completion.


I hope everyone is excited as we are about this event, and lots more juniors can come to this event this year.

If you have any questions please let me know. I hope to send out the full itinerary soon, and look forward to hearing from you all.

Kind regards
