Aiki Connections 2018 – Daito Ryu Aiki-jujutsu

Howard Popkin and Joe Brogna return to the UK at the end of June 2018 for the fifth annual Aiki Connections weekend, in historic Dover. Home to the famous white cliffs and the amazing 11th Century Castle.

Those who attended the previous four UK seminars here will agree it is always a fantastic weekend, with all participants enjoying the great humour and sublime skills that are on offer.

South of the River 2015

sotr2015The success of the recent South of the River Seminar, hosted by Genryukan Aikido, means that we were able to make an excellent donation to our supported charity SAGA Charitable Trust.

To all those who helped with the seminar, the instructors, mat movers, those who attended the weekend and very kindly donated to the charity, we would like to thank you for your generosity. We would also like to express our gratitude to the British Aikido Association for their extremely generous donation.

Sarah Jenner of SCT responded “Your donation is enough to give 180 school pupils in Kenya a bag of flour – each bag provides twelve meals for a family of four – food they would not otherwise be able to afford. Huge, huge thanks to you as always for supporting us and to everyone who got involved in making donations”
