Bujinkan Israel Shiki Dojo is honored to host for the first time in Israel a prominent European instructor, Shihan Pedro Fleitas for a joint seminar with Shihan Moti Nativ.
Those of us who followed Shihan Moti Nativ’s international activities probably noticed the fruitful collaboration he has with Shihan Pedro Fleitas over a few years. However this is the first time this collaboration is taking place in Israel.
This event presents a unique opportunity to experience the symbiotic relationship between teachers who carry a diverse teaching style and understanding of the art.
This Tai Kai is the first international event in Israel since the 1992 Tai Kai, in which Shihan Doron Navon hosted Sensai Masaaki Hatsumi.
We hope this event will be the first of many International events of this scope in Israel to follow.

Pedro says, "My mission as instructor is to take on the work of teaching and expanding the martial arts that make up the Bujinkan. As such, my only objective when I'm invited to a city or country is to pass on my personal interpretation, according to my own experience, the teachings of the Bujinkan dojo, and Soke Hatsumi."
