We are very excited to once again welcome Charles Colten Sensei, 5th Dan Aikikai, back to our New Orleans for a weekend seminar!

Colten Sensei has been studying Aikido since 1986, is a direct student (Deshi) to Endo Seishiro Shihan, and has been strongly influenced by Sensei(s) Okamoto Seigo, Jan Nevelius, Jorma Lyly, and Mary Heiny.

Charles teaches at several locations in New York City and gives Aikido seminars in the USA, Canada, and Latin America. He is the Director and Chief Instructor of Aikido in the Schools, which is dedicated to bringing the physical, mental and emotional benefits of Aikido into public, private, and international schools;

As founder of the Confluence Institute, Charles has also brought Aikido principles and practices into the fields of Conflict Resolution, Stress Management, and Leadership Coaching; providing trainings for Judges, School Administrators, Teachers, Healers, Consultants, and Business Professionals;

An eternal student, Charles considers the study, practice, and sharing of “Aikido as his lens, window, mirror, and medicine; and an endless wellspring of knowledge, wisdom, and joy.”

Charles Sensei is a very gifted teacher and Aikidoist, and his seminars always bring new perspectives and insights as well as a deepening of everyone’s practice, creating a joyful and uplifting weekend for all participants.

For out-of-town Aikidoka, it is possible to sleep in our dojo.  We can also arrange housing with dojo members on a first-come, first-served basis.  Please contact us if you would like help with either of these arrangements or if you have other questions.

You can find more information and updates on the Facebook event.
