Seminar/Event: Great Mongolian Adventure Tour
Posted 5/16/2001 3:44pm [from Matt Meeks]
"Continuing the Dream of Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba." Gaku Homma Sensei, founder of Aikido Nippon Kan, is making a trip to Mongolia in June, and would like to invite all Aikidoka to join him. It's a great opportunity to explore a culture and a part of the world that not many get to see. This is not a money making opportunity for Nippon Kan or Homma Sensei, but a genuine offer to share a rare cultural opportunity. We apologize for the short notice, but registration closes June 8th, so if you're interested at all, I suggest you check out the details as soon as possible. More information is available on the website at http://www.nippon-kan.org/mongolia2001.html.

Please let me know if there are any books missing from the database using the Add Books page! I'll hopefully be updating the Videos section shortly...
