Jonathan Lewis Sensei Seminar – April 1 – 3

Wow.. What an amazing weekend of Aikido training. It was a our first seminar with Jonathan Lewis Sensei at South Austin Aikido.
We focused on breathing and movement of body while exploring connection through our practice. It was a fun and thought provoking seminar, filled with great energy during each class.

Many thanks to all who came and participated, making this seminar a great success.

Special thanks to Jonathan Sensei for your time and focus on and off the mat over this seminar weekend. You provided much for us to think about and work on with our practice. We look forward to seeing you in Austin again next year!

Many Blessings,
