Jamaica Aikido Retreat

One Love Aikikai: A Celebration of Aikido Community in Treasure Beach, Jamaica. Join us on the south coast of Jamaica for 6 days, 5 nights of aikido and relaxation (or adventure!), as you replace your winter blues with the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. This year’s aikido retreat will be located at a boutique hotel described as “a hip, bohemian hotspot with easygoing appeal... one of Jamaica’s hidden gems.” This safe, walkable fishing community defines joyful Jamaican hospitality, and is hopping with intimate restaurants, shops, and music venues as well as expansive stretches of beach where you can wander in solitude.
