In General Essay by Monique Lloyd - Weapons Seminar Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Aikido Weapons Seminar:

Most people attend seminars in order to learn something new, and the quality of the seminar is often decided by how much new information is obtained by the attending person. The weapons seminar was greatly different from the typical seminar; rather than placing a focus on new techniques, the seminar focused on the basic and key elements that were often forgotten when performing a learned technique. The seminar was separated into two parts and scheduled in such a way as to promote both analysis of technique and application.

The seminar was oriented for anyone, but it tended to have the greatest impact on those who had an average or better than average understanding of techniques in Aikido, and it seeked to improve fundamental elements in them through the integration of weapons. The focus of the seminar was to explicate the basics, not only to break them down but also to study them as a whole. By taking an entire day to begin gaining a general understanding of key concepts the seminar served as a means to correct habits and focus on technique versus visual replication and repetition.
