Join us this weekend for a two-hour Ki Aikido Workshop with visiting 5th degree black belt instructor, Mort Melman, Head Instructor of Franklin Ki Aikido
Train with Mort Melman Sensei, 5th Dan Ki Aikido
Inspired by his decades-long experience training with Mark Rubbert Sensei and Koichi Kashiwaya Sensei, among others, Melman Sensei’s approach to sharing his understanding of Ki Aikido is light, approachable and profound.
Two great back-to-back opportunities to stretch your mind (and body) and have fun practicing Ki Aikido in person with other Ki Aikidoka.
