March 3rd-4th 2012: Dan Harden in Hawaii
 
"Internal training, Aiki, and empowering Aikido" - 5th Hawaii Workshop

Sponsored by the Aikido Sangenkai

This workshop is a continuation of the workshops held here in Hawaii since 2010. Dan is making his research into the Japanese arts and the resultant training practices of his private dojo available on a national level. The goal is to offer a workshop in a neutral environment, with an emphasis on learning and understanding internal power and aiki as a basis for martial movement in a global sense, while undertaking the difficult task of taking that first step into personal training and integration of the concepts into your own art. This will be Dan's fifth workshop in Hawaii.

The work shop will review and expand the principles of the system Dan has developed and taught successfully to hundreds of students and teachers from a wide range of martial arts. Dan will outline the training in such a way as to make the relevancy to martial movement immediate, clear and accessible. Included will be:

-> A presentation of how the martial arts take advantage of natural and common postural failures and methods for building a martial body that moves antithetical to the principles most martial arts use as their foundation for defeating the common body frame.

-> How the trained body can begin to take care of itself automatically in a live environment.

-> An emphasis on specific training tools (solo and paired) to develop internal power, and specifically how it relates to aiki connections in a martial context.

-> Creating and maintaining a structure supported on all sides and how to strengthen it with breath training exercises.

The material covered; while benefiting aikido greatly will not be "specific" to just the aiki arts like Aikido and Daito ryu, but any grappling or striking art, so teachers from other disciplines are welcome.

Dress will be sweats or shorts and T-shirts. No Gis, No budo affiliated T-shirts please. This will be very informal, and casual, but I strongly urge you to bring a notebook.

This will be a closed workshop with no pictures, video, or visitors allowed. Participants are required to fill out an application to be considered for a spot. People may or may not be accepted by Dan's sole discretion. Preference will be given to those who have attended previous workshops.

Please contact us for further information.

Payment in full is required to register and reserve a place for the event. There is no registration at the door.

Thanks..see you there.

Best,

Chris
