Re: Things To Tell A New Aikido Student

120. Go to Seminars

Seminars are a wonderful time to develop new friendships, strengthen current friendships, and expose yourself to a different Sensei who may present a different or new way of doing or looking at something that may make a light go on. Someone gave me the advice that If you go away with just one good piece of of advice or new food for thought then it is money well spent!

121. Go to an Aikido Summer or Winter Camp

I went to camp for the first time this year and I went to the Summer camp in Colorado and met so many wonderful people. I had classes from Hiroshi Ikeda, Frank Doran, and others that offered wonderful training in Aikido. I especially enjoyed meeting and having classes from Mitsugi Saotome. Go to camp!!
