We are very excited to have Charles Colten Sensei back with us in NOLA the last weekend in August!

Colten Sensei is the Director and Chief Instructor of Aikido in the Schools, which is dedicated to bringing the benefits of Aikido into public and private schools. He currently lives and teaches in New York City and travels regularly to give seminars in other parts of the United States and abroad. His primary teachers are Endo Shihan and Senseis Jan Nevelius and Jorma Lyly, and he is extremely grateful for and strongly influenced by many others including Senseis Mary Heiny, Hiroshi Ikeda, Takeshi Yamashima, Mitsugi Saotome, Siego Okamoto, John Stone, and Robin Cooper.

His seminars always help us to find deeper levels of connection and relaxation, both in ourselves and with each other.  Charles Sensei is a very gifted teacher who generously shares his ever-evolving art with all students lucky enough to get to meet him, both on and off the tatamis.  This seminar is open to all levels and backgrounds in the art, including beginners.  A supportive but challenging atmosphere will allow us all to practice and evolve together.

We have a Facebook page for the seminar here.

And you can download the seminar flyer here.

The pre-registration deadline is August 21st, and you can pre-register securely online here.

For our out of town guests, some accommodations are available with NOLA Aikido members.  It is also possible to stay in the dojo.  For hotel or b and b recommendations or for other seminar information please feel free to contact us.

Aikidoists of all styles and affiliations are very warmly welcome!
