It will be followed by a European Forum (assistant/ni-kyu and above) and by a two practices/one lecture seminar of Tenshin meditation by Aoki Sensei (open to general participation).

You may like to advertise the European Forum and the Tenshin Seminar for the participation of related members of your group. As you will see on the web site, we designed the program so that the participants to the different events might have many occasions to meet and practice together (in particular, all exams will be opened to mitori keiko).

Early registration will help the organizers a lot.

Waiting for the pleasure to meet you in Italy
