UPCOMING SEMINARS


Join us for the 2019 GATHERING OF THE CLAN, NAMI RYU AIKI HEIHO’s preeminent traditional Japanese martial arts training seminar.

For the first time, this seminar will be held at the NEW HOMBU DOJO – River of Life Martial Arts and Wellness Center. You are invited to join us for this inaugural occasion.

If this is your first time attending, or you have never been to the River of Life Dojo, it is an impressive facility perfect for large seminars, complete with a kitchen, a few bedrooms, shower, fire pit, tons of space and much more.

We will be going off a similar model as the last few years where all meals will be included except for a few of the evenings where we go out. Over the next few weeks we will be sending out a detailed agenda and more info but here are the basics so that you can start planning.

When: Thursday February 21 through Sunday February 24, 2019. Attend all or any part.

Where: 321 Morris Rd, Fort Washington, PA 19034. Click here for a map.

Who is invited: All Nami Ryu students, members, and instructors.

Who else: Family of Nami Ryu students, members, and instructors – spouses, kids, significant others - are invited and encouraged to take part in any of our meal activities. Sight-seeing will be organized for those not taking part in the actual seminar. For those that have family members interested in attending the seminar please reach out so that we figure out a discounted price.

Teaching Content: Special Guest Instructor is James Williams, Kaicho. The content of Thursday will be focused on Instructors/instructing, but don't let that keep you from attending that day.

Food and Pricing: $700 for all four days or $200 per day which includes meals. Payment can be made through River of Life using the SIGN UP NOW button below. Or call and speak with Jason at 215-542-0102. He can enroll you over the phone. If anyone has any dietary concerns please reach out to Adam Edwards so that we can plan some options. His phone number is below.

Lodging: There are several hotels within a few miles. Camping on mat space is available for $14 per night with toiletries and towels provided.

We can share our travel plans as the seminar gets closer to share expenses to and from the airport etc.

Hoodies: This year Josh is designing Hoodies. Please enter your info here.
In the past we have included T-shirts in the price of the seminar. We are trying to do the same but as that Hoodies are more expensive there might be an additional cost depending on how the cost line up.

Reach out with any questions to Adam Edwards at 858-318-5804 or Jason Robinson at 215-542-0102.
