We are delighted to let you know that in conjunction with William Reed Sensei we have finalised the seminar programme and location for his visit in August as Maruyama Sensei's representative to Australia for this year. This year is the 10th anniversary of Aikido Yuishinkai in the West, under the foundation leadership of Williams Sensei. Reed Sensei will take us on a tour de force of Aikido Yuishinkai to celebrate the occasion.
'The evolution of Aikido Yuishinkai' seminar explores its roots and latest developments, from someone there from the beginning, as encouragement to press on as the school continues to mature and develop.
This unique insight is the perfect accompanyment to our daily practice giving us a richer understanding of Maruyama Sensei's journey to form and develop Aikido Yuishinkai right from his early days with the founder. The aiki arts arrived through direct transmission to us from the Sokaku Takeda, along the way drawing influences from many other teaching. While Eastern audiences seek to practice as the teaching requires, in the West an understanding of 'Why' is often an unspoken and unasked question. As a bridge between East and West Reed sensei can help us cross this chasm and understand more the beauty and richness of Aikido Yuishinkai through tracing the path of evolution with a sprinkling of humour and anecdotes along the way. please see the reed13.aikidorepublic.com for the seminar programme
Sensei will examine many of the facets of Aikido Yuishinkai and illuminate with deeper meaning through cultural and root art context the purposes of the practice.
