In General 12 Day Seminar Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Last Thursday ended the 12 day seminar I held for the dojo. It's amazing because the more I do Aikido the more I learn.

I guess it could be very confusing for everyone, because as I learn, my technique changes.

As my technique changes what I did yesterday is no longer what I am doing today. I guess this is the part that makes Aikido very Zen like.

Zen is something you can never grasp. If my students are trying to grasp what I am doing today, and tomorrow I am doing something different, it will be very confusing.

Well, the seminar had a wonderful turn out, and it was amazing how many students stuck with it and came just about everyday.

12 days is pretty demanding, especially since we all have lives outside of the dojo.

Now that the basics are out of the way, we can spend the rest of the year training!

I'm certainly impressed by the commitment level in your dojo. 12 days is a long time for a seminar.

wow! 12 days would be more than demanding for me, at least. I was pretty exhausted even after the one week training camp we had last year. It felt great though, I could get used to a 100 day seminar as well - sooner or later . Zolley aikidolondon.blogspot.com
