Steve Ubl Seminar
& Master Class
Minneapolis, MN
May 18-21, 2017

Sensei Ubl returns for a second time to Minnesota to teach a seminar and Master Class series.  Sensei Ubl was the first resident of the Hoitsugan Dojo (Nakayama Sensei’s private dojo in Tokyo) in 1972 and was one of Nakayama Sensei’s most personal uchi-deshi (“inner circle student”) during his multiple, extended stays there.  He also completed Sensei Nishiyama’s instructors’ course in California in the 1970’s.

Sensei Ubl has developed tremendous insights into how to make karate techniques effective. If this is your first time – you can’t miss the “Wow!” factor of intensity in his technique. But even more, you will see new ways to think about the techniques we all practice every day.  This event will introduces a new seminar format with special focus on instructor-level practitioners.
