We have assembled several Training Seminars that we are able to provide to interested groups or parties.
The various seminars that we offer, cover several subjects and levels. For any of our Tuite Technique/Application Courses, we have only one perquisite course (our “6 Tuite Principles”).
Additional Calligraphy courses include classes to determine an attendee's "Name Seal Kanji"(for use with a "Seal-Stone"). We also teach a basic "Katakana" Translation Course (useful for learning how to correctly brush a student's name's for certificates).
Seminars are priced according to subject content and the instruction time (commonly 4, 6, 12hr.) of the seminar requested, Any of these classes could also be offered as a multi-day seminar format as well (if desired). Contact us for pricing on what course you'd be interested in hosting. Minimum course attendance level (student count) for all courses is 10 students (excluding L.E. Courses). Course Instruction costs are determined for each subject based upon attendee count and travel distance. (Attendee seminar cost is determined by the host, who will set the price of the course for attendee's).

Martial Arts Courses:
6 Tuite Principles
This course introduces the attendee to the 6 Principles that we utilize for the determination of correct tuite application. We've found these principles to be extremely beneficial to students as well as instructors when establishing correct performance of any Tuite techniques. (This course will teach/review the "palm/fold"/"push-catch" technique as a learning reference source/tool).
Application of Kihon Tuite Techniques
This course will guide the attendees through the performance of the most common initially taught Tuite techniques. These are techniques that are often taught as the foundation motions for the majority of instructed Tuite techniques.
When referencing to our 6 Tuite Principles, we've found that student's and/or instructor's utilizing that methodology can often "self" correct any incorrectly performed techniques.
