Yoshinkan Uchideshi

Does anyone know of a Yoshinkan dojo in the US or Canada that will accept uchideshi's ?

Michael,

What is your definition of uchi-deshi? What exactly are you looking for?

Please excuse any missunderstanding I may have had on the subject. I am looking for a Yoshinkan school which will accept a live-in student at the dojo.

I don't think Dojo's do that anymore...at least, I sincerely doubt it for America...

Ki-ai-do: dyslexic Aikido. Also known as "drunken Aikido", this is usually practiced in bars, accompained by much shouting.

There are some aikikai schools that still have live-in programs. I don't know any Yoshikan ones that do, but there are some long-time Yoshinkan students (including Steve Miranda) on this website. Hopefully one of them will have the answer for you.

As far as I know, there are no schools in N.A. that offer a "live in" program, however I can inquire. It may take a few days to get a response.

Gerjan Eilander:

Welcome to the board. I don't have your school listed in my dojo directory and wonder if you could go to my site and provide me your details. I only have two Yoshinkan schools listed in Italy, both IYAF.

The site can be found at http://www.seikeikan.com/links.htm

Thanks ...

Michael,

You can check the uchi deshi page for links to programs. The Chudokan in Ontario offers an uchi deshi program. I have been uchi deshi there since January and I can only give it the highest recomendation. Miranda sensei! I am out in Californa and Oregon with Blok sensei right for some seminars. I had hoped to run into you but John Fox told me you had pressing business this week. Maybe next time I am in Californa.

Hello Keith,

Thanks for the reponse to Michael's inquery. I was not sure if Chodukan had a program as he is asking for, but is one of the ones I thought about.

Fox Sensei is correct about my busy schedule. I returned last night from a 4 day excursion in Southern California. Family outtings.

Sorry for missing you ....

Hi Gerjan,

There are at least 5 Dojos in the San Francisco Bay Area that have uchideshi programs, some of them are on the QT though, as zoning laws might prevent overnight stays.

Gaku Homma sensei has an uchideshi program and even has a book which discusses (among other things) some of what the uchideshi do there. (365 day dojo handbook) The NipponKan dojo look pretty cool on their website. (Colorado)

FWIW
