In Motion Center and California Sangenkai are honored to have world renowned martial arts instructors Dan Harden with Roy Goldberg, the highest ranked Daito Ryu practitioner outside of Japan, to teach how they have applied the internal body training from Daito Ryu Aiki Jujutsu to modern combative martial techniques such as strikes, throws, joint-locks, etc.

Participants will explore:
