Aiki Connections 2018 – with Howard Popkin and Joe Brogna
Course date : Saturday 30th June & Sunday 1st July 2018
Howard Popkin and Joe Brogna return to the UK at the end of June 2018 for the fifth annual Aiki Connections weekend, in historic Dover. Home to the famous white cliffs and the amazing 11th Century Castle.
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.
Howard Popkin, long time student of Okamoto Seigo, the founder of Roppokai Daitō-ryū and a student of Horikawa Kodo Sensei (longest serving student of Daitō-ryū Aiki-jūjutsu founder Takeda Sōkaku).
Howard is a teacher of rare quality, profound, light-touch kuzushi, extensive technical knowledge and fine humour. His lessons and technical insights into the practice of aiki are true treasures for any serious student of aikido, judo and many other arts.
Location: Genryukan Aikido, Clarendon & Westbury Community Centre, Belgrave Rd, Dover, Kent CT17 9RA.
