Nobu Arakawa Seminar

Nobu Arakawa SenseiBrevard Aikikai is hosting a fund raising seminar for Nobu Arakawa Sensei, chief instructor of Hyde Park Aikido.

Scheduled to teach are the following USAF instructors:

Arakawa Sensei is a long time student of Yamada Sensei, and trained for many years at New York Aikikai.  We’ve had the privilege to host him at our school, in 2002 and 2003.

On a personal note, Arakawa Sensei tested me for 5th kyu in 2002, and in 2004, tested me for 2nd kyu in Tampa. The seminar is a benefit for Sensei, who has been diagnosed with cancer.

The seminar itself is scheduled for Sunday, October 3, 2010, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  It will be held at Brevard Aikikai. In lieu of a seminar fee, Brevard Aikikai is accepting donations on behalf of Sensei.
