Re: 2008 Nami Ryu Spring Seminar

James Williams Sensei has been training in the martial arts for over four and a half decades. Williams Sensei has made appearances on Discovery Channel, National Geographic and the Outdoor Network. His expertise and understanding has bee sought after by military and security forces from around the globe such as the US Army Special Operations, US Navy Special Warfare, Singapore Police STAR Unit and the Trinidad Police. Williams Sensei is highly regarded for his martial skills in this country and abroad and this is your chance to be introduced to the classical Japanese martial arts of kenjutsu and Aikijujutsu as taught in Nami Ryu Aiki Heiho.

This seminar will cover the foundations that Nami Ryu is built on. He will introduce you to the basics of kenjutsu and aikijujutsu, and enlighten you as to how they tie together. This is a perfect opportunity to get introduced to Williams Sensei and Nami Ryu. Other topics such as knife and ground defenses are likely to be studied as well.

Each day's training will start promptly at 9:00am and end at 5:00pm, with an hour break for lunch, which is six hours of train each day. Private instruction with Williams Sensei can cost over $100/hour. Your cost for this exciting weekend of semi-private instruction is only $200 if you register on or before February 20th. That is a $100 savings because after February 20th the cost is $300. SO GET YOUR REGISTRATION IN EARLY!
