Re: New Year's Eve/Day Aikido Plans?

Here it is an hour and a half approximately after Jun-san's post
and noone has come up with an answer on formal practice on
New Year's Eve or New Year's Day.

I have just been instructed by a "newbie" in the introductions,
and first Aikido class, and what sparked interest in Aikido threads
by Lari of Finland ---- that Finns do what they have decided to do.
(Not all of us do). I'm not a Finn but it's a good maxim to live
by, if possible.

So here's a suggestion: suppose someone has no local dojo
that has New Year Practice or has transportation problems.
Are you married to or living with someone who has practiced
Aikido? Or are friends visiting that have? Try at least ikkyo and
then the kansetsu nikyo thru sankyo, gently if necessary,
stronger if they want to..... Now I have to be like a Finn and
actually do what I say I am going to do. After all, it's going to
be a new decade and we want to set a good tone, don't we?
Sorry, Lari about the bad pun, I know you are a musician.

We have a special training every New Years Day -- two hours of keiko including "The 108 Practice".

Sorry about that, I wasn't aware I was on the clock.

We have misogi. 108 shomenuchi ikkyo suwari waza, giving and receiving, with one partner, and then four each with everyone else in the dojo. Then we have a party.

Re: New Year's Eve/Day Aikido Plans?

Our last class in this year will be tomorrow and after class we'll toast with champagne, I put a post on my blog inviting all of our group even the ones that are not training this month, I hope everyone who is still on the island will come. I heard something about a little speech our Sensei will do, knowing him it sure will be something to laugh about

We'll have training on New Year's Eve in the afternoon. Afterwards probabely a small toast and then everybody can go and celebrate. So I'll have both: training and nice celebration at home with self cooked Japanese meal

With the best wishes for a happy and prosperous new year,

Simone

My dojo has class every Sunday night. So we will train, as usual, on Sunday night. It being New Years day is really not all that significant in the dojo.

We will have our regular training on New Year's day and then we will head down to the beach and do some suburi while we walk into the water....it's gonna be cold.

Best in 2011 to you all.

You're on a different time zone than the rest of us? I'm having my New Year's Day open house on Saturday the first....

My old karate dojo didn't have class on either New Year's Day or New Year's Eve...the dojo was closed then as it was for most holidays. We did have a special New Year's class, though, which was never announced: it might be the last regularly scheduled class before New Year, or the first one after New Year, or some other class more or less around New Year. It made it much harder to dodge out if you were looking to avoid it...and this class was animal.

Re: New Year's Eve/Day Aikido Plans?

One dojo I was at, a new-year midnight training session was proposed. I went along in part out of curiosity, in part because sensei was doing it as a special traditional thing to do.
I did feel strange, though, that it took sensei away from his family at New Year ...

Best wishes for 2011, however you ring it in.
