Doka of the Day - December 18, 2014
His sword raised to the attack,
The enemy flies at the man he thinks before him.
But from the very start
I was standing behind him.

Posted 12/05/2014 2:57pm [from Andrzej Siwkiewicz]

Oberlin Aikido Club will host Ellis Amdur Sensei at the 2015 Winter Seminar January 30th through February 1st, 2015. After several years of absence Amdur Sensei is returning to Oberlin to teach our annual Winter Seminar. This is a rare opportunity to experience first-hand the instruction and insight of this consummate practitioner and teacher of Aikido and ancient Koryu, who wrote a number of books on the subject ("Hidden in Plain Sight: Tracing the Roots of Ueshiba Morihei's Power", "Dueling with O'Sensei: Grappling with the Myth of the Warrior Sage" among others) and taught seminars to wide ranging audiences nationally and abroad, weaving together disparate Aikido techniques into one coherent method of execution. The goal is to develop one's practice in such a way that there is no division between atemi, throwing techniques and kaeshiwaza. All affiliations are welcome. Please join us on January 30th through February 1st, 2015 at the Hales Gym in Oberlin College, 180 West Lorain Street, Oberlin, Ohio 44074-1016 Classes are scheduled on Friday 7-9 p.m., Saturday 10-12 and and 3-5 p.m., Sunday 10-1 p.m. Saturday dinner will be held traditionally at Oberlin's renowned Weia Teia restaurant.
