Decker Sensei

The Cork Energy Arts Centre was founded by Decker Sensei (6th Dan Aikikai), student of internal martial arts for over 40 years, as a Centre for the study of Energy Arts in Cork City. After living in the United States for 35 years, Decker Sensei returned to Europe in 2009. He is an authentic lineage teacher/practitioner in all disciplines he is sharing: Aikido, T’ai Chi Ch’uan, Reiki and Hanmi Buddhism.
