Ikeda sensei is back! 4 days, 20 hours and 1 exceptional teacher.

April 17, 18, 19 & 20. Chishin Dojo are very proud to host one of the worlds foremost Aikido teachers for his 3rd visit to the UK.


This year we're hosting sensei for a longer than usual 4 day seminar and spaces are filling up fast. There will be plenty of hands on time and a lot of socialising over the 4 days with Ikeda sensei. Spaces are limited to 50 people and this year we're hosting the entire event in our own dojo in Coventry. There's limited space to stay in the dojo on a first come, first served basis so please get in touch ASAP.


We have fewer than 15 spaces remaining as of February 18.

you guys must be glutton for punishment. 4 days? usually, one day with sensei is enough to scramble your brain and body. be honest, you will only train for 1 day, then party for 3, right? :)

Hey Phi,

I think I've met sensei enough times to not get my brain completely and utterly scrambled... But that's only because Mike Sigman explained what a line was ;).

Party in the dojo? Don't give the guys who're sleeping there any ideas!

John.

Great seminar! I couldn't attend but i'm watching the footage. Could you tell what Mike Sigman explained to you?.

What I understand by "line" is a line that goes from the floor through my feets, hips, shoulders,elbow, wrist and then to uke's palm, elbow and shoulder and stops there if i only want to unbalance uke to left or right side a litte bit.

Another thing i cannot understand is what is "the line" when you are grabbed by three ukes. I have noticed that Ikeda sensei keeps saying "make line" instead "make lineS" and this is confusing.

Have you any insights on this?

Well, the thing with all of this is that it has to be felt. But, in a nutshell, the line, or vector isn't running through your body in the way you think, it's simply a line that goes from your rear foot to uke in the shortest distance toward uke's centre.

Mike is really very good at explaining this stuff, no idea why aikido people seem hellbent on not listening to him lol. Even Ikeda sensei says he's doing the same things.

Basically if you connect your body, uke becomes connected to you as well. As Ikeda sensei also says, change yourself don't change uke.

John.
