The AKBAN family congratulates Aris Sensei on opening the second AKBAN dojo in Greece. This dojo will join Vasilis Sensei, the head of AKBAN Greece and the headmaster of Athens dojo. I am honoured by the strong company of these two wonderful teachers, Vasilis and Aris, and welcome their help and expertise in guarding and developing the Ninjutsu I learned from my teacher, Doron Navon Sensei.

I will teach in a special seminar in AKBAN Athens, Greece, this Saturday, 2.4.2016. Here’s the Facebook event link.

God’s speed, Aris Sensei, well done Vasilis Sensei, Yshar Koach.
