Re: Ukemi Workshop taught by Kaizen Taiki (4/17 & 4/18)

I would like to extend a HUGE thanks to Kaizen Taiki and a thanks to all of the people who attended this seminar!

Kaizen Taiki is a remarkably effective teacher who presented attendees with an approach towards ukemi different than what we are accustomed to. The Systema approach allowed people to explore unnecessary fears and tensions that are typically associated with ukemi. Attendees were able to make significant progress in working through the fears and tensions that inhibit one's ukemi while opening ones' self up to a greater risk of injury.

If you have an opportunity to take a class/seminar taught by Kaizen Taiki, you will be well rewarded by doing so. Kaizen will be returning to my dojo next April to teach a seminar on Breathing and it's relationship to martial arts.
