Daito Ryu Aiki Jujutsu with Roy Goldberg, 7th Dan

Although some experience with taking ukemi (rolling and breakfalls) is recommended, it is not required. Goldberg Sensei will demonstrate techniques for students of all ranks and experience.

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.
