For some of AKBAN instructors, and me included, the last weeks have been extremely busy and interesting. After the visit of our colleague from Japan and a Detant workshop for rescue team leaders we concluded one of our best symposiums at which AKBAN instructors from Israel and abroad participated.

Last Friday we delivered another Detant workshop in which we ushered, for the first time, the next phase (Detant phase 2) of Detant’s extensive syllabus. I think it was a good example of the depth of our program.

I want to thank all the participants for the in-depth debriefing and attendance. We invest time and effort to adapt the Detant syllabus for different sectors and your input was invaluable.

This week, in AKBAN dojo, we will continue learning the other side of the emotional regulation spectrum.

This Friday, 17.2.2017, 08:30 sharp, we will do a Detant seminar (phase 2). All tickets for this seminar were snatched in minutes. If you couldn’t register for this seminar, we will have another one (phase 2) in few weeks.

During the week we will work on techniques from the excellent International Akban symposium that concluded last week.

This week I will only teach in Jerusalem, Sunday, and Tel Aviv, Thursday.

I will not be present at the other sessions because of the Detant seminar for rescue and emergency situations that will take place at Rescue-1. Experts and team leaders from Japan and Israel will participate and my Detant teaching duties will prevent regular teaching in AKBAN.

AKBAN instructors will teach in my stead.

At Friday, 08:00, I will teach Rokshaku Bo in Tel Aviv Honbu dojo.

This Friday I will be teaching in Athens, Greece, for the 2016 winter seminar. Due to the seminar there will be no Haka training in Honbu dojo Tel Aviv.

The Winter Seminar in AKBAN Athens will go deep into applying traditional techniques and will focus on the versatile flexible weapons of the AKBAN Armory. The weekend seminar will conclude with Detant workshop for warriors. This top level learning teaches emotional modulation through the body.

During the week in AKBAN Israel we will continue to explore Fudo Ryu unique attack syncopations.
