Open Mat Martial Arts Visit

I believe it is important to show students aspects of other martial arts and in Aikido I strongly believe in teaching correct striking techniques, as how can you defend against a strike if you cant throw one yourself.
On June 8th Penguin Aikido was lucky to have a visit from Sensei Colin Niland of Open Mat Martial Arts.  Sensei Colin came to Tasmania for a brief holiday and was happy to host a free seminar for all Penguin Aikido Students.

Sensei Colin is a long time friend and training partner of mine, and has vast experience in a number of martial arts, I was honored to have him take the class.   All of the students thoroughly enjoyed themselves and left the seminar with a greater understanding  of the kicking techniques that Open Mat Martial Arts teaches.  I hope that he will return again one day.

I also am hoping to get other guest instructors to Penguin Aikido in the future.

All the Best.

Sensei Palmer
