Schedule a Seminar


Pellman Sensei is pleased to conduct seminars in Nippon Budō and/or Okinawa Budō throughout North America on behalf of the Nippon Budō Seishin-Kan and Kokusai Okinawa Bujutsu Renmei.   These seminars are a wonderful opportunity to introduce your students to classical budō concepts and styles rarely taught outside Japan and which they might not otherwise get an opportunity to receive personal instruction.

Offering these seminars can attract new students to your dōjō and aid in retention of existing students by providing learning opportunities not offered by your competitors.  A seminar also serves as an introduction to the Kokusai Nippon Budō Kai and/or Kokusai Okinawa Bujutsu Renmei so you can determine if a long-term relationship with either or both of these organizations would benefit your dōjō and students.

  • Shindō Musō-Ryū Jōjutsu
  • Shindō Musō-Ryū Kenjutsu
  • Ono-Ha Ittō-Ryū Kenjutsu
  • Daitō-Ryū Aiki-jūjutsu

 Pellman Sensei will tailor his presentation to the experience level of those attending, so presentations are available as introductions to any of these arts, beginner and intermediate training, or advanced technique and theory.

Okinawa Bujutsu Seminars

Posted by Pellman Sensei on September 25, 2006

Available seminars in Okinawan martial arts are: 

  • Shitō-Ryū Karate-dō
  • Aragaki-Ryū Okinawa Kobujutsu


Each seminar is tailored to a general experience level, so Pellman Sensei's presentation can be an introduction to either art, a beginner-intermediate training session, or black belt training.  His seminars can also be presented on a specific kata (i.e, Gojūshihō or Kongō no Kon) and its bunkai (practical application), which is an excellent way to introduce students to concepts and techniques that are different from the style they normally practice in order to broaden their experience and deepen their knowledge.
