Calgary Aikikai's 30th Anniversary Seminar August 13 -15, 2010

To celebrate the late Inaba Senseiís (6th Dan) close friendships and life-long commitment to teaching aikido. Calgary Aikikai is honored to bring together some of the worldís foremost instructors in aikido including three of OíSenseiís remaining uchi-deshi. This weekend seminar is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Please join us in Calgary on August 13, 14 and 15th as we celebrate 30 years of aikido.

Key Shihans such as Kobayashi Sensei 8th Dan Japan, Asai Sensei 8th Dan Germany, Arai Sensei 7th Dan Japan who are some of the last of O-Sensei's and 2nd Doshu Kishomaru's uchideshis at a Aikikai Honbu Dojo will be in attendance. This might be the only, and last, chance to see these three in one seminar together.
Other senseiís who are confirmed at this time are Igarashi Sensei 6th Dan Japan, Kubo Sensei 7th Dan Hawaii, Shirakawa Sensei 7th Dan Japan and H. Kobayashi Sensei 6th Dan Japan. There will also be a number of high ranked Senseiís who will also be teaching sessions at this seminar. The weekend will conclude with a demonstration by these Shihans, Senseiís and visiting students that will be one to remember.

Okay, dumb question. What I meant to say is:

Can anyone relate any personal experiences of seminars with Shirakawa Sensei?

I'm just looking forward to this and wondering what to expect.
