I just found out that attendance fee is $30 if you're a TAA member (Tomiki Aikido of the Americas). Non-member attendance fee is $50 - which still isn't bad for an all day event!

At a quick glance, I think he's going over aiki age but the sound is muffled.

Yeah the video was kind of lacking. That's why I posted all the links to the other stuff about him. It's a real honor to have him coming to Columbus.

Will he be there for the Friday evening session? Is he visiting other Ohio dojos?

Thanks,

I've heard great things about Satoh Sensei. He comes very highly recommended. I have his 2 dvds as well - very good stuff regarding total body power basics and applications.

We were lucky to be shown some of his concepts by Shishida Shihan last year. I'll be seeing him at the Nationals in August.

I recommend that anyone who is interested in how coordinated total body power works in Aikido should check out his seminars.

Mark - Satoh Sensei will be at the informal Friday night workout. I'm still trying to find out what the schedule is for the rest of the week and where Satoh Sensei will be visiting. Will let you know as I find it out.

Larry - Your comments made me just that much more excited for the visit!

Both videos have been pulled from Youtube.

That's weird. I just checked and both were there. It would be a shame to pull them. There were some interesting parts in them.

For example, in the second vid, I liked (near the end) where he was showing a Daito ryu technique that looked like what Takeda was famous for (getting in and lifting someone on his shoulders) and how it was changed to the aikido version (kokyu nage technique for some schools).

Just got back from the U.S. National Tomiki Aikido Tournament in Campbell. Sato-sensei covered various types of kaeshiwaza over the 3 days as well as some new forms of tai sabaki that maximizes the use of hips and spine in a whip-like action.

His focus on executing subtle kuzushi in the midst of a technique using I Do Ryoku (movement power) and tegatana were very very interesting.

He also shared some Budo history showing the similarities and differences between Aikido and Judo and the importance of ma ai.

He did not specifically go through aiki age and aiki sage in detail, but they were critical aspects to almost every principle and technique taught.

Any Aikidoka will do well to catch him before he leaves the U.S. this weekend. His assistant, Konaka sensei is also quite adept. Sato's teaching is focused on martial application of aiki principles so I think its appeal crosses any stylistic boundaries.

Just my 2 cents after training with him this weekend.

I had the privilge of attending the seminar Tadayuki Satoh Shihan taught on Tuesday night at the Wapakoneta Jukido Kai Dojo. Absolutely amazing. Even had the honor of Uke-ing for him.

It's one thing to "see it" it's another to feel it.

If you get the chance to see him - please do. If you are coming to the seminar. I'll see you there.

Cheers!
