We are blessed to have Elias Krzywacki visiting Austin again this year! He will be teaching this seminar on May 19th and 20th at Bujinkan Sanami Dojo in South Austin. The seminar will begin at 10:00am Saturday morning and go until 6 pm Sunday will be 10 am to 3 pm. We will have a dinner at a local restraunt on Saturday night to show Elias a nice time and allow people to get to know him and each other better.


Elias has been to Japan around 40 times and is just returning from a trip. He has a great physical ability to show effortless taijutsu in a way that we can all utilize as tools to progress and help others in our own dojo. At Sanami Dojo we are still developing from the last seminar. The ideas and exercises Elias shared have been invaluable and continue to vibrate and aid in our training.


Cost will be $100
$75 for one day
