7th INTERNATIONAL DAITO-RYU AIKIJUJUTSU WINTER SEMINAR
On February 18-20, 2005 the 7th Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu International Winter Seminar will be held in Italy by A. Certa Sensei.
Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu is a traditional japanese jujutsu school that gave birth to many modern martial arts like Yoseikan Budo, Hakko-ryu, Shorinji Kempo and, of course, Aikido.
During the Seminar various techniques from the Hiden and Chuden Mokuroku will be shown and practiced, and also kenjutsu from Ono-ha Itto-ryu.
There is no special requirement to participate in the Seminar other than being interested and serious in learning more of the art. Also coming without a conceited attitude is welcome.
The Seminar is International and people from all around Europe will participate.
