SMAA Michigan Seminar

In October, the Japanese Martial Arts Center will host the SMAA Michigan Seminar. A two-day event, the seminar will be taught by Nicklaus Suino Sensei, and the topic will be The Exceptional Martial Artist. At this important seminar, Suino Sensei will not only teach traditional Japanese martial arts, he will focus on how to most effectively and effortlessly attain mastery in any form of budo and/or koryu bujutsu. The principles covered will also relate to success in daily life, reinforcing a common theme espoused by the SMAA: budo training must extend beyond the dojo to help society and ourselves. You won’t want to miss this fantastic opportunity to study with one of the highest-ranking budoka living outside of Japan!
