This is an annual training event sponsored by the IKKF. The training had the following as Seminar Instructors: Hanshi C. Bruce Heilman, 10th Dan; Hanshi Miguel Ibarra, 10th Dan; Hanshi Jody Paul, 9th Dan; and Hanshi Ann-Marie Heilman, 9th Dan. We were also assisted by our IKKF Kyoshi and Renshi members attending. The two day training focused on Okinawa Kenpo Karate (kata and bunkai), Okinawa Kenpo Kobudo (kata, bunkai and two person forms), Okinawan Toide (joint locking and nerve points), and Aiki-Jujitsu (grappling and joint manipulations). The training was held on January 25-26, 2014 at the IKKF Honbu, Reading, Pennsylvania.
