NFK seminar poster

Based on the big success of “7 Masters”, special consessive seminars starts from 10th May. the Seminar consists of 12 times, once a month, will take a year. After the seminar every participants are expected to do AIKI JUTSU. There are very few persons who can handle real AIKI JUTSU in Europe.  I aim to achieve the goal that I will raise a lot of AIKI JUJUTSU-KA here in Nederland  and Nederland shall has the biggest AIKIJUTSU-KA population in Europe after a year.



BUDO seminar “7 Masters” on 30th March

BUDO seminar “7 Masters” was held in Den Haag on 30th March by NFK.  SOUSHI KURABE SHISEIDO participated the seminar and showed AIKIJUTSU to over 40 participants.
For all the participants, it was the first time to see the real AIKI JUTSU, they did not believe it is real. But after they got experience by themselves, they started realize AIKI JUTSU is not magic but real technique. It was a big success.
