2022-09-23 Tokyo Open Seminar Report

This seminar saw a diverse group of attendees from afar afield as Kyushu, Wakayama, and Nagano prefectures. As the photos show, we had to relocate to the normal training venue after an unexpected clash at our booked venue; this excitement it did not dilute the fun of the seminar, and learning the Aunkai method. Thank you for all the positive feedback, and that the seminar could help participants re-evaluate what bujutsu training involves.

Thank you everyone for makes this seminar such a success!

2022-03-27 Tokyo Open Seminar Report

Affected by changes in the Coronavirus situation, the first seminar of 2022 finally took place a month later than originally planned, and at a different location; the timing proved fortuitous and happily a large number of participants could at last enjoy again training and studying under Akuzawa sensei.

Feedback from seminar participants who had made a long trip from around Japan was extremely positive, expressing both satisfaction with the material and level of instruction, as well as the overall enjoyment of Aunkai training.
