This event belongs to the series Ki/Aikido/Aikijujutsu Study Days in Stavanger. Stavanger Ki-Aikido Club organizes regular intensive study days on Saturday every 4-6 weeks concentrating on Ki, Aikido, and Aikijujutsu. All adults are welcome regardless of age, shape, or experience. A study day gives a good introduction to continue training with us in Ki-Aikido and/or Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu in our regular training sessions. Study days are hosted by Esa Lilja.
