Howard Popkin Sensei at Aikido Eastside in Bellevue, WA
Popkin Sensei will conduct a seminar covering the techniques and principles of Daito Ryu the system of aikijutsu studied by Morihei Ueshiba, the Founder of Aikido. This is principle based, body centered instruction and will be of immense value in understanding how to do Aikido with "aiki". This seminar is open to the public regardless of style or affiliation... there are "Open Classes" available for students who have little or no previous experience with Popkin Sensei. The other classes are for those with previous experience and the Study Group Members from around the country.
On-line Info and Registration
I'm stoked, hope I get it together to go. The registration website says there's a Friday class, is that going to happen? An extra class might tip the scales on the 7 hour one way drive. I'll stop at Uwajimaya and get a couple liters sake....
