Stéphane Benedetti Shihan, 7th Dan Mutokukai

An open weekend course in Cardiff with one of Europe's finest instructors

Stéphane Benedetti returns to Cardiff for an open seminar. Stéphane is a truly inimitable presence in the dojo, and an illuminating teacher. His instruction focuses determinedly on the basics of Aikido, which is where he insists its secrets are to be found.

This seminar is open to practitioners of all levels, and is particularly recommended to newcomers to Aikido.
