Aikido Jiyu Waza Seminar: The principles, practices, and applications of free response in Aikido


The principles, practices, and applications of free response in Aikido

We invite you to join us for a rare opportunity to train with Miles Kessler Sensei in the U.S. Experience his deep insights and practical methods for developing centered, connected, and effective responses through conflict.

If you’d like to take your Aikido beyond the step-by-step application of technique, this seminar is for you. All Aikidoka are welcome!
