Open Mat Martial Arts visiting Penguin Aikido

Penguin Aikido is proud to be hosting Sensei Colin Niland from Open Mat Martial Arts on Wednesday 8th of June, during the Youth and Adult classes.

Sensei Niland and I went through our Black Belt journey together in Perth WA at West Coast Aikido Academy.  Journeys like this create life long bonds, and I am really looking forward to this great teacher and friend coming to Tasmania to visit and train.

Sensei Brad Palmer and Sensei Colin Niland

Sensei Niland has a wealth of experience having attained high ranks in a variety of Martial Arts including Aikido, Judo, Tae Kwon Do and Karate.  It will be a valuable opportunity for the students of Penguin Aikido to train with Sensei Niland, and I encourage everyone to attend.  Also if you have a friend or family member who you think may enjoy this opportunity please contact me to arrange a booking, for existing students of Penguin Aikido there is no extra charge.

See you at the dojo.
