Mini Dai Komyo Sai Celebration



Saturday February 10, 2018



On Saturday, February 10, 2018, the Dayton Bujinkan Dojo is holding its annual mini-Dai Komyo Sai Seminar and Celebration featuring Dan Klug!


The Dayton Bujinkan Dojo is holding its annual Mini Dai Komyo Sai Seminar and Celebration on the weekend of Saturday, February 10, 2018. Dan Klug is the guest instructor for this year's event.


What is a Mini Dai Komyo Sai? For decades, Hatsumi Sensei (Bujinkan Soke) in Japan held yearly events to celebrate his birthday and another year of training. The Dayton Bujinkan Dojo has held "mini" Dai Komyo Sai seminars since 1997. All students, friends and guests are invited to participate in the daytime training and evening potluck dinner festivities. All activities are held at the Dayton Bujinkan Dojo.


Guest instructor Dan Klug has been teaching yearly seminars at the Dayton Bujinkan Dojo since 1997, and has been a senior practitioner to many of the instructors since 1991. Dan Klug (Bujinkan Judan, boxer and BJJ brown belt) has been training in the Bujinkan since the early 1980s, has visited Japan more than a dozen times for training, and holds regular classes weekly in Washington State. An original student of Kurt Rittenhouse Martial Arts in Kettering, Ohio, Dan has trained in the Bujinkan Arts under Hatsumi Soke, Nagato Shihan, and Noguchi Shihan, and in the past with Manaka Sensei and Muramatsu Sensei. His unique style of Budo Taijutsu attracts students from all disciplines of martial arts.
