Internal/Aiki training with Dan Harden in London, April13-15
 
The seminar will be a continuation of the development and applications of internal power and aiki, as spelled out and written by Morihei Ueshiba for practical application in his Aikido.

We are currently looking at locations.
Information on location, time, registration and payment will be posted as they come available.

This will be my third visit to the UK. Previous attendees are going to be given priority for this Seminar as I hope to continue moving forward with the groups we have trained with in the past. In reality there may be few if any spaces left, sorry. I am listing this as a courtesy. I am trying to make a few available per seminar when I can. Any spaces left will be on a first come/ first served basis and I will write you in, in order of response.
Cost will be the equivalent of $175 U.S. dollars at whatever exchange rate is at the time.
Email me at dojoseminars@gmail.com.
If you need to reach me use the dojoseminar email and not my Aikiweb P.M. address.

Dan
P.S. I have 26 Seminars I am doing this year-most are private and already booked. I will continue to strive to make spots available when I can. I don't like doing large format seminars -say over thirty people- as they simply don't work for this type of internal/aiki training. I need hands on time with people so you actually learn something and feel the difference.

Hello Mr Walters
I don't usually book these things. People ask me to come to their dojos. I don't know anyone in New Zealand- though I would love to visit. All you need do is find people who might be interested. Typically you ask around and or put it up on some forums, that you are trying to get me there. Although I am a nobody, I am pretty booked for 2012 and the demand is getting higher. I would think more toward fall if people were interested.

Maybe the guys in NZ could get Dan a walk-on part in the Hobbit movie while he's visiting?
Suggestions? (ducks for cover...)

The furry feet would do it . . . . (doesn't duck for cover . . . . too slow-moving and amiable).

This is filling up very fast and will probably close out by Friday. We are going to have another mix of returning ICMA people and Aikido people. I will try to leave a few spots open for newbies.
Write me soon at dojoseminars@gmail.com if you want in

Dan,

I wouldn't taunt Patrick.....as you know Patrick's budo is violent, but not nearly as violent as his verbal assaults.

The bruises will heal, but the emotional scars last a lifetime...especially with the accent :D

Have a great weekend...and I suck for missing it.

Sorry,

Howie

Sir--

The "slow-moving" and "amiable" were adjectives I was describing myself with--although I will attest to your general amiability (at least if certain topics of conversation can be avoided).

Yes, I can surmise the knife teacher of whom you speak. I am too slow-moving to have been able to catch up with him regarding accounting for a certain business arrangement--and I'm probably too amiable to worry about it.

Sorry to say, Patrick outweighs Howard in both the accent and the swearing department.

Impartial observer, here. I calls 'em as I sees 'em.

You guys should have seen Dans face when trying to understand a Geordie the first time he came to the UK, may as well have been Swahili, priceless.
Dan, this may help in future visits

Oh...so now I get the Boston AND the Canadian thrown at me? :blush:
You should hear me practicing presentations so the accent goes away. By the time I'm done- I'm in a sweat and the blood pressure is rising!! Then the Q and A..........
Had a friend who watched a presentation on local cable remark "That didn't even sound like you!! It was like someone else in your body!
Thank you Dale Carnagie!!! :D :D :D
