In Training Seminar with Anno Sensei 2 Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Today again training. Lovely place to meet a lot of new people. Somehow this seminar benefits from having the good portion of the aikidoka, aka the crunchers and other nasties were absent.

My knee is a bit sore so I have to be carefull not to overdo it. Suwariwaza is a big no-no still...even though I want to do it but I guess being thickheaded and doing suwariwaza anyway is bad. Luckily I am surrounded with friends that take care of me (aka they remind me I am an idiot and shouldnt do suwariwaza)

Already had the first day of the 3 day seminar with Anno Sensei.
Had great fun training with people from different countries: Finland, Spain, Switserland, Netherlands and of course Japan.

It is quite interesting to see that it is very difficult to let go of the form you trained all the time and focus on the connection and Ma.

Of course it doesnt help if your partner thinks this technique can only be one way and all the other ways are wrong. Luckily those people seem to be a very small minority at this seminar.

Btw, Anno Sensei feels like a very sturdy pile of rocks that isnt there
