Re: Why/Why Not Seminars?
I go to seminars when I can, but it's not as often as I would like. So far, I've been to seminars with Sandai Doshu, Fujita Masatake, Endo Seishiro, Kobayashi Yasuo, Maruyama Koretoshi, Koide Takeo, Shishiya Ichiro (although to be fair, I was training in his dojo at the time), and Suzuki Yasuyuki. When you consider the number of years I have been doing aikido, that really doesn't seem like much, but it is really hard to find the time and money to attend seminars when you live in a place like Tasmania. Most of the seminars I have attended were when I was living in Japan. In any case, I really enjoy the opportunity to train with new people as learn new perspectives on aikido.
