Roy Goldberg Sensei Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu Seminar
Please join us for our Spring 2018 Seminar and the honor of welcoming Roy Goldberg Sensei back to Grand Rapids for a weekend of intense practice! This event is open to all martial artists and schools.
Roy Shingen Goldberg Sensei is the highest-ranking student of Hayawo Kiyama Shihan, the President and Chief Instructor of NADRAKK. He was given the name of Shingen by the Menkyo Kaiden when he was given his Hiden Mokuroku, the first scroll of transmission in Daito Ryu. Goldberg Sensei was awarded the rank of 7th Dan and certified with the rare teaching license Kyoju Dairi by the Kodo Kai Menkyo Kaiden. He is the first and only non-Japanese to earn this rank from the Hombu Dojo in Kitami, Japan. In June, 2016 he was presented with the prestigious Hi Ogi, the 3rd scroll in the transmission of Daito Ryu.
Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu is a 1,200-year-old samurai martial art. It has directly influenced the development of many popular martial arts, such as Aikido, Shorinji Kempo, Hakko Ryu Jujutsu and Hapkido.
Daito Ryu's core principles and focus on subtle manipulations of balance will complement and enrich any martial arts training. Once a secret art, passed generation to generation through the Takeda clan, the system of Daito Ryu Aiki Ju-jutsu was revived in the late 19th century by Sokaku Takeda, 32nd in line of the Takeda family.
