We are happy to host Koji Yoshida Shihan for this once a year event. On his final visit to the U.S. in 2000 Shoji Nishio Sensei appointed Yoshida Sensei as his official representative. Yoshida Sensei continues to build on Nishio Sensei’s progressive and innovative work. His seminars are always interesting, exciting and very rewarding. Please join us!
This seminar will teach the integration of empty hand, ken and jo as well as Toho Iaido, Nishio Sensei’s seminal development in the expression of aikido using the katana. Toho Iaido continues to evolve and expand under the skill and wisdom of Yoshida Sensei.
Everyone is welcome to participate in iaido training as well. No prior experience is required. You can train either with a boken or an iaito (non-sharp sword). Please do not use shinken (sharp blade).
Lunch and snacks are included. You can let us know at checkout if you have any dietary restrictions (vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, etc.)
