Roppokai Seminar with Okamoto Seigo
 
To All Interested Parties:

Okamoto Seigo, Leader of the Daitoryu Aikijujutsu Roppokai will return to the east coast in April with one exciting addition. A group of very dedicated people have been flying from Florida to NY to practice Roppokai with us, so Sensei has granted us permission to have a seminar in Florida. The seminar will be held at - http://aikidoofpalmbeach.com/. THE FLORIDA SEMINAR IS AN OPEN SEMINAR !!!!

I am the contact person for Roppokai information in New York and Florida, and Tom Cohen is the contact person for NC - makoto333@iwon.com.

The schedule is as follows:
NY - Saturday, Sunday - April 19,20
Florida - Tuesday, Wednesday - April 22,23
NC - Saturday, Sunday - April 26,27

Thanks !

I have received a few e-mails:

1) Pre-registration is mandatory for all of Okamoto's Seminars
2) The Florida Seminar is open to all ranks and styles with knowledge of ukemi. PRE REGISTRATION IS STILL NECESSARY.

Thanks !

Contact me and I'll give you all the details.

The swellings gone down mostly, but it still hurts like (insert explicative here). I trained today in Fort Lauderdale with the Roppokai group, and I made it through without too much trouble. Seiza hurts like a mother, but kiza grants me a bit of a requiem from it.

And the spear... Had to give thanks where it was due for the ability to train with you and practice it when you aren't here. A small token.

I was there. I saw it all. Howard projected his "Ki" and without touching Brian, Howard made him fall down. The most amazing Ki-Master demonstration ever. :hypno:

Mark,

The only "Ki" was the relaxed energy from the beer :)

LOL! So, if it was beer, then it could be said you were drink-ki-ing, er drinking. Hiccup :D

Hope you're doing well! Been busy on this side of things.

From having trained with Howard, I would say that if it was at all within your means, an opportunity to train with Okamoto Sensei should not be passed up. Get there if you can! :)
