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

Had a quick look at the footage last night from the seminar... Looks great! Still a way off yet as it's still being time-lined (we had 3 cameras). Ikeda sensei said we should make 2 DVD's one of Saturday and one of Sunday... I'll update as and when we get a little nearer - might put a small clip out on youtube as a promo nearer the time.

Best Regards,
John

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

Hi Manuel,

Well, for next year we have better filming planned. Sensei suggested we use a handy-cam type setup as well as the other cameras, I think he likes gadgets almost as much as me .

Can't wait...

Best Regards,
John

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

Hi John,

As I said in Coventry, I would definitely like to have a copy of the DVD(s) of the weekend.

I'm sure you will keep us informed of developments via AikiWeb...

Alex

i believed i talked about this in one of the thread. when you have not the body that worked with this stuffs, you will be blind and deaf going in. you can feel your balance broke by Ikeda sensei, but you wouldn't be able feel what he did to you or be able to reverse engineering it. Ikeda sensei said, which i am paraphrased, "dan ranked no guaranteed you understand this!"

i believed i wrote a bunch of stuffs on translating what Ikeda sensei said somewhere.
Hi Phi,

I'd be interested to see what you said!

What is fascinating is that my wife, who is a Scaravelli yoga teacher, can do this stuff, while I have practised with quite a few Aikikai sixth dans who aren't even close...

Hi Alex,

Better yet... Drop me an email and come and meet Mike Sigman when he's next in the UK, I guarantee you'll get what Ikeda sensei is doing after a weekend with him. Well... if you become obsessed with it anyways.

Best Regards,
John

Hi Phi,

Yup, you do have to think about this stuff but I have to say I found Mike's stuff way more accessible than Dan's stuff. It just made so much more sense to me. I heard about both guys, I met both guys, I found Mike's teaching methods worked for me big time, it just made more sense. YMMV as in all things.

Best Regards,
John

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

I have to admit that the course was totally mind blowing !!! I've met Ikeda Sensei about 4 years ago in France. Having that experience in mind I could compare the feeling when you get hold of him . The only conclusion I have is that he has improved ALOT and that his explanations are way better ! For anyone who is bored with pure aikido techniques should come along and see Ikeda Sensei. I can guarantee you that he will demonstrate to you that aikido can be put into a totally different level. You grab him, you resits, you sit down against your will. You think he got lucky that time, so you try again and the same happens. Its great

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

dropping my 2cents in. i do agree with John about the teaching methods for the internal stuff. i have not me tMr Dan or Mr Mike , but from what ive been told and what i have tried i also found that Mr Mike explanations make sense and are very easy to get into your head. its not superb easy to make your body do it but the concepts and training methods (on what you exacly need to do) are crystal clear. hope it helps

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

Just an early heads up... Ikeda sensei is back in the UK April 5th to 7th, 2013.

More details (and a new thread) once I've confirmed everything...

Best Regards,
John
