Coordinator of the seminar, sensei Włodzimierz Kwieciński 8 Dan (Poland) summed up the May training:
– Sensei Salas spent many years studying traditional karate-do and developing in search of energy “chi”. It combines the knowledge and experience gained from many years of practice, showing how to maintain vitality and health. The energy of “chi” allows us to be active both physically and mentally and spiritually. Sensei can perfectly explain what “chi” energy is, and also show it!
