Keiko Shokon All Study Group Gasshuku

The 2nd annual Keiko Shokon Seminar for all of our Daito Ryu Study Group members will take place in Albany, NY from June 23 through 24. To emphasize this "new beginning of the old ways," the annual seminar is called "Keiko Shokon." "Keiko−Shokon" is a phrase from the oldest Japanese chronicle, the Kojiki,  meaning "meditating upon antiquity to find a guide to the present."

This annual event gives us a time and place for everyone to come together to align our steps; to have us all face the same direction; and to re-affirm and renew our commitment to the ancient art of Daito Ryu Aiki Jujutsu.

Goldberg Sensei strongly encourages all Study Group heads and members to attend. We will cover detailed corrections on the kyu techniques and training practice.
