Sensei’s Last Visit to Australia.

An invitation from Kessler sensei, head of Ki Society Aikido Australia( ). Kataoka sensei was my first international aikido seminar experience. I remember him being soft, yet underneath which was hiding the tiger. He gave many seminars in Byron Bay and a few in Brisbane in the last 15yrs. Sadly he is not coming to Brisbane this time as it would have been nice to learn some more from him. But for those interested he is up in Cairns. Here are the details and an open invitation to attend 

Yes, Sadly, this will be Sensei’s last visit to Australia as he is becoming too much in demand at H.Q.
