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.

Aiki Connections 2017

Once again, we’ve had a great weekend learning some Daitoryu Aikijujitsu techniques, thanks to Howard Popkin and Joe Brogna from the  Daitoryu Aikijujitsu Ginjukai

The 4th edition of the Aiki Connection seminar has been a success with a packed dojo. It was very nice to see people from so many different martial arts style training together with open minds. Howard and Joe, as usual, brought their good humour and high level of skills, making the lessons very enjoyable and fun.

Big thank you to Phil Eyers for organising this great event.
