Off to Japan again!

Hey all, its been a long time since I last posted, been so very busy with my Japanese Course and work. It's also been a long time since I've been to my dojo, due to my busy hectic life. However I have decided to head to Japan in a week, due to receiving holidays for my course. I will be going straight to Osaka, and training with Miyako Fujitani Sensei. I want to also go and visit Abe Sensei. Has anyone had any experience with this? Has anyone ever been to train with Abe Sensei? I've have always wanted to go and even if I'm not allowed to train, but at least watch! I hope I haven't lost much skill since stopping (not entirely) in Aikido.

Your thoughts please,

Re: Off to Japan again!

You might like to look at the website for Abe Sensei's dojo. It was a bit difficult for our group (we went in late March) to find the dojo, as it's tucked away in an alley near the pedestrain bridge. Having said that though, the keiko with Abe Sensei was difficult to say the least - involved a lot of subtle stuff...

And his dojo appears strict on ceremony... we witnessed the dan certificate presentation. There is one person who reads the dan certificate, who then passes it to another person who confirms the contents, who then passes it to Abe Sensei to make the presentation.

Also, the Osaka Aikikai Hombu Dojo is on the same road past the alley (maybe 5 minutes away on foot). You might like to give that place a try as well.

Happy training.

I envy you.

Ok I dont envy you, I just have the desire to train with a japanese sensei and learn japanese.


To speak ill of anything is against the nature of Aikido
