Hiroshi Ikeda sensei in the UK - April 20-22, 2012

Posted 2011-11-15 08:43:21 by John Burn
News URL: http://www.chishindojo.co.uk/ikeda-sensei.html

Hiroshi Ikeda sensei will be teaching a seminar in the UK for the first time in April 2012. Chishin Dojo are very proud to have been able to invite Ikeda sensei over and he's agreed to a slightly longer than normal seminar - the end result is that we all get more hands on time with sensei.

Registration is available on the link above - any questions then please go to www.chishindojo.co.uk and get in touch or email us at info@chishindojo.co.uk.

The seminar is open to all Aikido folks, no matter your style or association.

I cannot recommend an Ikeda Sensei seminar high enough.

Please don't miss it.

Re: Hiroshi Ikeda sensei in the UK - April 20-22, 2012

talked to Ikeda sensei last year and he mentioned about the UK. he said he has not been in UK and looked forward to it. so you guys better take good care of him and have him back here nice and good afterward. otherwise, we would have to cross the pond and challenged you blokes to a drinking duel. it will be ugly and brutal, since we only bring ugly brutes with us.

Phi,

you can bring the biggest ugliest brutes you like, but all we would need to do, is fill them up with a few pints of Theakston's "Old Peculiar" or a pint or three of "Old Speckled Hen" and they would be like gibbering babies, unable to knock their way out of a wet paper bag!!

Don't worry, I'm sure we will be very well behaved and hand him back to you unharmed

regards

Mark

Should have some cheap (and close to the venue) accommodation details up by Sunday so keep an eye on the seminar page...

Re: Hiroshi Ikeda sensei in the UK - April 20-22, 2012

Apologies for not updating the site sooner, I've been trying to organise a discount from the hotels but they won't play ball unfortunately... I'll get the details online on the main website tonight but... Here are the closest 3 that should be available for under £35 per night - the last 2 are under £30 per night.

10 minute walk - http://www.premiere-classe-coventry.co.uk/
15 to 20 minute walk - http://www.premierinn.com/en/hotel/C...ventry-m6,jct2
5 to 10 minute drive - nice surroundings, good cheap food and in the countryside - http://www.premierinn.com/en/hotel/C...try-east-ansty

Best Regards,
John

Re: Hiroshi Ikeda sensei in the UK - April 20-22, 2012

Maybe a B&B could be an option as well

For example: http://www.bedandbreakfastworld.com/coventry/england

Seems like they can beat the price - but I'm a bit lost when it comes to location...

Re: Hiroshi Ikeda sensei in the UK - April 20-22, 2012

Hi Jørgen,

The general area is called Potters Green or Walsgrave and I can't see any B&B's in the local vicinity sadly.

John

Re: Hiroshi Ikeda sensei in the UK - April 20-22, 2012

Hi

It's a bit difficult to get everything to fit with travelplans.. We should be able to get a plane out of CPH to BHX on friday arriving in time for the evening practice, but it's quite difficult to get out of BHX on sunday any later than 18.45.

How much time should we expect to spend on getting to the airport on sunday? Taking traffic into account? Should we go by cab, and how much would this be?

I am sorry to say the expences are piling up here, so it might turn out to be too much for a two day camp even though I am very anxious to go. However we will do our best to get it together

Any suggestions on how to best arrange for transportation and bording please speak up

Hope to see you

Jørgen Jakob

Re: Hiroshi Ikeda sensei in the UK - April 20-22, 2012

Hi Jørgen,

I'd imagine we will be over and done with by about 16:00 on the Sunday - we'll plan to have shorter breaks on the Sunday and even if that's not possible then I'm sure that sensei won't mind if people need to leave an hour or so early - he'll understand.

By cab, from Coventry to BHX you're looking at under 25 minutes and a cost of around £30 I'd imagine.

Best Regards,
John

Re: Hiroshi Ikeda sensei in the UK - April 20-22, 2012

Hi all,

Just a quick update - we're getting fairly close to capacity now - seems to have been a surge in the last week of people booking - thanks! Ikeda sensei is very much looking forward to his first visit to the UK.

If anyone who's coming has any issues, problems or questions then please give me a call on 07966692857 or if you're outside of the UK then call me on +447966692857.

Best Regards,
John

Re: Hiroshi Ikeda sensei in the UK - April 20-22, 2012

Don't miss this seminar with Ikeda Sensei... he is off the charts!!!

May 5th - 6th I will be in Coventry at the Phoenix Aikido and Fitness Club. The seminar is full but if any of my local on-line friends wants to come by and say hi, I'd love to see folks. Even though the seminar is full, I believe observing is ok if anyone is interested...

Re: Hiroshi Ikeda sensei in the UK - April 20-22, 2012

Hi all,

Quick update from Ikeda sensei... He's asked for people to not bring weapons to this one, he may well demonstrate with them but we won't be using them, sensei didn't want anyone traveling from abroad paying extra for their weapons baggage to the Airlines.

We're fairly close in terms of capacity so if I don't know you're coming yet might be an idea to drop me a line. If you know anyone interested who is turning up on the day then the rates are as follows if they do not book in advance -

Full Seminar - £90
Sat & Sunday - £75
Sat OR Sun - £50
Fri & EITHER Sat OR Sun - £60

If you know me and I've said a different price to you directly then don't worry .

Any questions, please give me a shout on 07966692857 or +447966692857.

Best Regards,
John

Re: Hiroshi Ikeda sensei in the UK - April 20-22, 2012

Well...

The seminar is over (for this year) and... wow. I don't know what else to say, I feel very sorry for the other 10,000 UK Aikido practitioners who stayed at home - we were full to capacity however so not really a problem for everyone who was there. Ikeda sensei really is crazy good - in fact, that doesn't come close to describing just how good he is.

Sensei taught 3 days of 4 hours plus with Saturday and Sunday being straight through classes with no break for lunch. Everyone had a blast and then some. I'll get some images into the gallery asap.

I hope UK Aikido just changed for the better and that the 120 or so people who came along (from at least 27 DIFFERENT aikido groups) keep what they learnt alive.

Thank you to sensei for coming, thank you to everyone else for coming along and supporting what will hopefully turn out to be the first of many trips.

Best Regards,
John
