Don Angier Soke: Yanagi Ryu Aikijiujitsu

Aikido of Diablo Valley is excited and pleased to once again host Don Angier Soke in an upcoming seminar, January 15-16, 2011!

This is a rare opportunity to enjoy and profit from hands-on training by one of the most skilled martial artist in the world who otherwise limits his training to a few private students. Don Angier Soke has been called by such notables as Stanley Pranin, editor and Publisher of Aikido Journal/AikiNews, "a martial arts genius."

The young Don Angier (pronounced "An-jhy") was mentored in Yanagi-Ryu Aiki Bugei by its Soke, Yoshida Kenji, son of Yoshida Kotaro. It was Yoshida Kotaro who introduced Morihei Ueshiba (the founder of Aikido) to Takeda Sensei of the Daito Ryu, and who sponsored Ueshiba into the Daito School. In 1954 Yoshida Kenji passed the title of Soke, or Inheritor, to Don Angier. Soke Angier was given the hanko, or seal, bearing the Yanagi Ryu name and authority.

Soke Angier taught Aiki jiu jitsu publicly from 1955 to 1988, but now teaches only to a few selected students at his home in Long Beach, CA.

For more information on Don Angier, please check out the following sites:




Don't miss this unique and deeply satisfying opportunity to train with a giant in contemporary martial arts. In past seminars Don Angier has demonstrated fighting techniques that include not only open hand, but tanto, bokken, jo and even the steel-spined (and deadly) Japanese fan!

The schedule for the training on January 15 and 16, 2011:

Saturday- 10:00 am - 12:30 pm, 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Sunday- 10:00 am -- 12:00 pm, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

There is limited room and we encourage you to register now for this outstanding opportunity at $100. After December 1, 2010, the price is $120 on a first come, first serve basis only. Mail your check to:

Aikido of Diablo Valley
1674 Challenge Drive,
Concord, CA 94520
