What people are saying
Derek Bindner visited my class to speak about the relationship between mind and body. My students had been reading about aikido and doing basic exercises as part of the course requirements, but Derek’s seminar really brought ideas about harmony, centre, and peak performance to life. Students were unanimous in their praise for the effectiveness and inventiveness of the seminar. Some students even said that Derek’s seminar should be required for all university students to help them rise above stress to find success!

"The 8-Week Jiu-jitsu program run by Derek at Bindner Academy is a challenging and enjoyable workout. The self-protection section Derek teaches as part of the program is practical and he gives detailed instruction on how and when to implement each technique. As usual, Derek always keeps the mood of the sessions light and fun but works his students hard at the same time. Highly recommended and I will be returning again when I can fit it into my schedule.
