H.HIROSAWA Sensei, Aikikai Shihan, will hold a seminar in the next 10-11th june 2006 in Italy.
I post the small presentation of this huge Master I found on the Takemusu Aikido Association Italy website:
Hideo Hirosawa is born in Iwama, in the Ibaraki Prefecture, on 14th May 1937. He begins his Aikido practice in February 1958, under the continuous guidance of the Founder, O'Sensei Morihei Ueshiba for 12 years. After the Founder's death, in 1969, he keeps on practising in the Ibaraki dojo under the guidance of Morihiro Saitō Sensei until his death in 2002.
At the moment he teaches in the Ryugasaki Dojo and in the Ibaraki Shibu Dojo in Iwama.
Hirosawa Sensei, Aikikai Shihan, is one of the most experienced living instructors of Aikido; in addition to an extraordinary technical mastery, he is also one of the few deshi who received directly by the Founder important private teachings on the art of breathing and on the spiritual aspects of Aikido.
Hirosawa Sensei, who has always been a very discreet man, directs a Koshukai out of Japan for the first time.
This event is then a unique opportunity for learning the traditional Aikido techniques and the inner spirituality of this noble art.
we can find more about this event at : www.taai.it
hope I could see many of you there....
