Join us for a four hour intensive training session in this rare and beautiful martial art! Held on traditional tatami mats, seminars at the Kiyamakan Dojo in Stamford are limited to no more than 10 attendees. This allows for a significant amount of one-on-one instruction directly from Goldberg Sensei. If you are new to Daito Ryu or have never trained with Goldberg Sensei, this is an excellent way to feel the techniques for yourself in a small group setting.

Seminars are held several Saturdays a year, times may vary. The fee for attending is $100. 

Daito Ryu's core principles focus on subtle manipulations of balance and will complement and enrich any martial arts training regardless of style. Daito Ryu is not just a set of techniques, but a mindset that can transform budo practice. Although some experience with taking ukemi (rolling and breakfalls) is recommended, it is not required. 

Roy Goldberg Sensei is one of the highest ranked Daito Ryu Aiki Jujutsu practitioners outside of Japan and the senior student of Hayawo Kiyama Shihan. Goldberg Sensei has trained over 3 decades with Kiyama Shihan and the leading Shihan from Japan including three Menkyo Kaiden. Goldberg Sensei was awarded the rank of 7th Dan and certified with the rare teaching license Kyoju Dairi by the Kodokai Menkyo Kaiden. He is the first and only non-Japanese to earn this rank from the Hombu Dojo in Kitami, Japan. 

Daito Ryu Aiki Jujutsu is a 1,200-year-old samurai martial art. It has directly influenced the development of many popular martial arts, Shorinji Kempo, Hakko Ryu Jujutsu, Hapkido and most famously Aikido. Once a secret art, passed generation to generation through the Takeda clan, the system of Daito Ryu was revived in the late 19th century by Sokaku Takeda.
