Throughout the year teachers from around the world are invited to Aikido of Manhattan for special seminars. In addition, Juba sensei also travels to other dojos to conduct seminars. Students are encouraged to take advantage of these seminars to further develop the art, especially when teachers from abroad are invited. These activities are a great way to meet and train with students from other dojos.
