Erik Calderon's Martial Arts Program
Entries for the Month of
General 12 Day Seminar
01-22-2008 11:01 PM
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!

Develop the ability to control your movements when executing a technique.
It is very obvious when you are allowing fear to control your movements.
Consider it deeply and thoroughly, because thinking you are doing something and doing something different is very common.
