The 2019 IKKU Bokken and Iaido Clinic will take place TBD in Buford, GA
Please join us for our annual IKKU Bokken and Iaido Clinic on April 27, 2019, in Buford, GA. This event will be Hosted by Kyoshi-Sei Larry Griffin of the Keishin Karate Kai. The IKKU Bokken and Iaido Clinic will feature Soke Joseph Ruiz, 10th Dan and Founder of the Kotosu-Ha Shito-Ryu Karate-Do System. Soke always has something good to teach us, so you don’t ever want to miss an opportunity to take part in his clinics. There will be morning and afternoon sessions including Seitei Gata and Kata.
The Sword and Bokken are true Japanese Arts. Soke Ruiz learned the art while training with his teachers in Hawaii and Japan. He continued his training in the U.S. with Soke Shogo Kuniba, 10th Dan, Seishin Kai Karate Union. This is a rare opportunity to train in a true Japanese Martial Art unlike any other.
