Re: Vimeo video: Ima Juku Japan Day 2010 Demo

It's always hard to represent your teacher's movement when you're a long way away from him/her...there is also the fact that this is not ones' dojo (it's an unfamiliar place...for teacher and students), Arjan is clearly taking the edge off of some techniques to make sure his students are okay. That being said, I think Mr. S has some valid perspectives (once explained clearly:-) and Arjan (and anyone for that matter) can benefit from them. He's right too, that the enbu should reflect you....Suganuma Sensei also clearly says this. Being more strict with your posture, Arjan, is also good advice...this is a process.... When all is said and done, for a public demo in an unfamiliar place, I think you and your students did a great job. I'm willing to bet you had some inquiries from the demo. Gambatte!

Yes exactly. This is quite common mistake I can see developing last few years.
Well, perhaps you should talk to Suganuma Shihan about this. Perhaps you can teach him a thing or two.

I do not have any problem with critics at all believe me. What I find curious is that you have an opinion without knowing me or, much more important, having felt my Aikido. Futher more you do not know my students or how far they are in level. So, your conclusions, allthough you have interesting points, should been build in other words.
You must know a few things about O Sensei (you quote the man) so you should now something about mental principals.
Further more, the whole community of course is whaiting desperatily on a video of your demo. At least, I am....

All the best,

Arjan

Re: Vimeo video: Ima Juku Japan Day 2010 Demo

Athough I think Mr. S almost always has valid points, and his "issue" is in the delivery of those points, I too would love to see an enbu by him.....whaddya say Mr. S. Will you grace us with a video of yourself displaying the principles of aikido as you have embodied thus far?

Hello Arjan,
You asked me for more explanations - so I wrote them. Don't like it? - no problem, I'm not your teacher.
Wish you all the best.

You are right, I have to work harder on my communication skills.
