Kan Geiko means “Winter Practice,” and it’s a long-established exercise in traditional Japanese budo. Often involving periods of extended and intensive training during the coldest time of the year, it’s designed to challenge, strengthen, and purify both mind and body. The SMAA Kan Geiko will offer high-level instruction in Kodokan judo, Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu iaido, and Sato Ryu Nihon jujutsu. You can experience all three arts or choose to focus on just one.
Sato Ryu Nihon jujutsu training will be offered on December 16, 17, and 18. Practice will take place from 6:00 to 9:00 PM each day.
Kodokan judo training will be offered on December 21, 22, and 23. Practice will take place from 6:00 to 9:00 PM each day.
Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu iaido training will be offered on December 28, 29, and 30. Practice will take place from 6:00 to 9:00 PM each day.
