Seminar with Kenji Ushiro, 8th Dan, Kyoshi of Shindoryu Ushiro Karetedo
Kenji Ushiro Sensei teaches a style of Okinawan Karate called Shindoryu. His teacher, Nikichi Zaha, was a direct student of Choshin Chibana, a pivotal figure in the development of modern Okinawan Karate. Ushiro Sensei is a 8th dan Kyoshi of Shindoryu Ushiro Karetedo and 7th dan Kyoshi of Iaido, All-Japan Kendo Federation.
Ushiro Senseiís mastery of ki, as expressed through his karate, is at a level rarely seen in the world of martial arts. He is a highly sought-after instructor in Japan and author of several books on martial arts. His second book, Karate and Ki, has recently been released in an English version (reading this book before the seminar is strongly recommended).
Ushiro Sensei will be teaching two seminars in New York in 2009. These will be your only opportunities to train with Ushiro Sensei in the United States this year. This seminar is a rare opportunity for any style of martial artist to work on increasing the ability to generate and use internal power in the execution of an art. Registration for this event is mandatory and training spaces for this event are expected to fill-up quickly.

Seminar is next weekend folks and there are a few spots left!
If anybody has been reading Mike's posts lately, you will notice that he mentions Ushiro Sensei as being a good influence on Ikeda Sensei. Experience for yourself what others (myself included) have talked about!

I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank the participants who attended this very successful seminar. Many of the participants had attended previous seminars and the new attendees tended to be high ranking instructors of their own schools. This pattern is enabling Ushiro Sensei to establish a solid base upon which our skills can develop within our arts.
The next seminar with Ushiro Sensei will be October 24th & 25th of this year. The official announcement of this seminar will be made within the next two weeks so mark that date in your calendar!
