From the 18th to the 20th of May, Saito Shihan will be teaching a seminar in the city of Ivanovo, Russia.

The Wikipedia tells us this about the City of Ivanovo:
Ivanovo has traditionally been called the textile capital of Russia. Since most textile workers are women, it has also been known as the “City of Brides”. Probably the most famous of the city’s female natives was the postmodern French writer Nathalie Sarraute.”

The Ivanovo group is led by Sergey Botov Sensei, 5th Dan Iwama Shin Shin Aikishurenkai. Through the years Sergey Sensei has worked hard spreading Shin Shin Aikido in Russia and especially in Ivanovo and surroundings.
