02/11/2018 - 11/11/2018


The Yagyu dojo is an historic place where we are lucky and honored to be received. An seminar in Yagyu is an initiatory moment and you must prepare yourself physically and internally. This is an exceptional opportunity to experience through intensive practice in a place filled with energy and the presence of the greatest samurai in Japanese history.

Before proceeding with registration, you must be aware of your commitment to respect the discipline of the Yagyu dojo and temples, to attend all classes and to be accommodated in the dojo.

Any registration will be submitted to me for validation.
