Re: IP : videos, explanations and hopefully more

Hi Mateusz,

I was at that Seminar with Ikeda Sensei, and there appeared to be a hotchpotch of understanding, misunderstanding and non-understanding on the mat; but people are quite naturally at different levels in their understanding and practice. This is true in relation to all IP arts.

But correct me if I am wrong, doesn't your teacher (John Burns) include regular Jin classes using Mike Sigman's model at your dojo? And doesn't this include solo exercises for you to do on your own as well as the application of IP principles in Aikido?

If you are looking for a supplement to the teaching you are already getting, then it will be difficult to find a teacher - they are thin on the ground. The advice given re solo training is good advice. In addition, Dan is coming back to the UK in September - you might check that out.
