Giday from Christchurch NZ

Having trained for six months at Aikido it is apparent where the journey part comes from. The articles, forums , and discussions at Aiki/web are both interesting and informative sometimes even humorous Aikido rocks.

Re: Giday from Christchurch NZ

hey, it's a Shinryukan fest! Hi Dan, Hrvoje. I was at the gasshuku Hrvoje, it was an awesome time. Turns out that Doshu chap as got some game. Although I think Arai was the highlight for me. And I'm always reminded at these things how lucky we are to have Takase Shihan, his classes always stack up very well alongside the visiting Shihan.
Dan do you train under Andrew Williamson?

Re: Giday from Christchurch NZ

Thanks for the welcome
Didn't make the gasshuku hope Doshu will be back, the people that did go are still talking about it.
I train under Andrew sensei and other great instructors including one he is married to, we really are spoilt in Shinryukan.
Takase shihan comes down for gradings and seminars, to a begginer they all seem awesome.
Can't make the Wanaka seminar as i am breaking it to my wife slowly that she is an Aikido widow

Thanks again for the welcome

Re: Giday from Christchurch NZ

Dont mean to hi-jack this thread.... but i will.
Hey Michael do you have any idea how old Fujimaki shihan was? early forties? noone down here seems to know. & yeah, Arai and Sawada left a really good impression on me. Fujimaki left a good impression of me in the mat Pity we arent going to see anything like that again for a while. Doshu's a busy man. hope to see ya next year when i move up there for university!

Re: Giday from Christchurch NZ

I would guess early forties at most for Fujimaki maybe late 30s. All I know (apart from his obvious skill in aikido) was that he looked exaclty like Matt Damon would if he was Japanese.
Sawada was great, it was a bit disappointing he ended up trying to fit two classes in one session - I say we should have gone an extra hour...
Get in touch when you come up, and come out to howick for a roll, it'd be good to see you.
