In General My First Aikido Seminar! Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #26 New 02-07-2005 01:59 PM
Ok, so I haven't been keeping this up so well. Oh well. Anyways, this weekend I attended my first Aikido Seminar at my dojo. Our guest instructor was Peter Bernath, 6th Dan from the Florida Aikikai dojo. Woo boy! 6+ hours of Aikido instruction and it was pretty darned intense.

I've never worked on the mats with 30 to 40 people before. It was insane. No one got bad hurt and I didn't see any really bad collisions, though my wife got kicked in the head (not too bad, though). It was very interesting to see a very familiar and yet totally different style from Bernath Sensei. It was also a lot of fun working with some of my sensei's old classmates and other people I've never seen before. The crew from Prescott came down on Saturday giving the class a much needed influx of women. Without them the only women were my wife and another woman from the Chicago area.

Overall it was a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to my next seminar. Hopefully I'll be ranked by then.
