We are delighted to announce a seminar with Mary Heiny Sensei August 9-11, 2013 at Aikido of Madison. Heiny Sensei has intensively studied aikido for more than 40 years leading her to a deep understanding of the power of this art. In this seminar she will explore with us the concept of: "Masakatsu Agatsu Katsuhayahi” a favorite expression of O Sensei. John Stevens (O Sensei's biographer and writer on aikido) this as "true victory, self victory, day of swift victory." Hikitsuchi Sensei shared with Heiny Sensei the instruction he had from O Sensei concerning this phrase: "Find your life's mission, overcome the ego and experience victory that is beyond space and time."
Everyone is welcome-beginners and instructors alike, no matter what affiliation--do not feel shy about attending. If you need assistance with lodging or any other questions, do contact us.
Pre-registration for this seminar is required. We are unable to offer partial registration for the seminar, but you may of course split your registration with someone--just make sure to indicate both names if you are splitting a seminar with someone else.
