“Training, sharing, and polishing technique!”
We just finished yesterday our weekend seminar here in Las Vegas consisting of a special group of 16 top aikido instructors. The theme of the event was “Exploring Morihei Ueshiba O-Sensei’s Aikido,” that concept being the central thread of the workshop.
We drew several ideas from Morihei Ueshiba’s 1938 training manual “Budo” and applied them to our training. I also explained various historical events that affected the course of the development of aikido. Over the course of the weekend, we practiced numerous techniques analyzing them each in turn in light of a theoretical model that I have been formulating based on one of O-Sensei’s key principles.
In coming days, we will be posting a number of photos and videos from the seminar which will give you a good feel for the content, setting, and participants.
I will be conducting a similar event in Las Vegas, November 2-4 addressing the same theme. Three spots are left, so if any one is interested in joining us, we would be happy to welcome you on a first-come, first-served basis. Click here for information.
