We're excited to announce that Akuzawa Minoru, the founder of Aunkai, will be visiting Atlanta, GA for a two-day intensive seminar.

Akuzawa Sensei has developed a unique approach to training from his extensive background in Chinese and Japanese martial arts. Rather than focusing on specific techniques, he and his students work to develop the martial body itself, thus forming a core set of body skills that the practitioner can apply to whatever form of martial art they choose. This seminar is open to all interested students regardless of what art they currently study.

Looking forward to training this weekend.

A great job, Jang. You and the folks at Roswell Budokan are to be highly commended for such good organization and hospitality.

Ark's seminar was everything advertised and more.

Thanks for the excellent work.
