The theme of the 2018 East Coast Bridge in Orlando will be “AIKI”. The kanji represents a concept of coming together, which the Bridge symbolizes, encourages and supports. It speaks of the underlying connection active in the energy of human interaction. The seminar gathers a force to reinforce the bonds that tie us together through the common study of our art form woven in a fabric of strength and beauty. The common heart of Aikido and the communication of Aiki are a foundation of this for all of us. It is what the Bridge is made of.
Steve Fasen Sensei (ASU 6thDan) facilitates the bridge, inviting significant ASU instructors to share in strengthening the fabric and integrity of our art form and its affiliations. New instructors this year include: Greg Olson Sensei/ ASU, Daniel Lance Sensei/ France. Additional participating instructors include: Steve Fasen Sensei, Brian Canin Sensei, Melissa Bell Sensei, Greg O’Connor Sensei, Todd Jones Sensei, Bob Leichner Sensei.
