Kaname Ariga Sensei Aikido seminar 2024

Organised by JuShinKan Aikido in cooperation with Sentrum Aikido, Sunyata Aikido dojos and supported by the Kampsportforbundet (Norwegian Martial Arts Federation), we are welcoming everyone to join us at Ariga Sensei Aikido seminar 2024, the sixth seminar in Norway of Kaname Ariga Sensei.

The teacher

Ariga Sensei is one of the closest Japanese deshi (students) of Endo Seishiro Shihan, figuring as his uke in many demonstrations and instructional DVDs. He started Aikido in 1989 at the age of 15, and now teaches at and runs the Saku Dojo in Japan. He also teaches international seminars in Finland, Spain, England, Austria, Slovakia, Italy and Germany.

Ariga Sensei teaches a simple, elegant, soft and contact-based, yet effective aikido style, and is a very friendly, generous and inspiring teacher.
