Re: Kato Shihan, 8th dan, Aikikai, in Monterrey, Mexico, 6/2-6/3

we have a CHANGE IN LOCATION (effective May 14)
Location: Unidad Deportivo Revoluci˛n
Address: Pico Sorata S/N entre Avenida las Puentes Y Altamira
Colonia las Puentes 10║
San Nicolas de los Garza, Nuevo Leon Mexico C.P. 66427

Due to the interest in our seminar with Hiroshi Kato Shihan, we are moving to a larger and new location. This is still in the same area of Monterrey, nearer to the airport. There are very good 4 star hotels in the area. Kato Shihan will be touring Monterrey on Friday, June 1 before the seminar on Saturday and Sunday (June 2-3). All martial art styles are welcome to attend. Certificates of attendance will be handed out after Sunday's training.

Join us for two days of training with Hiroshi Kato Shihan, a student of O'Sensei Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of aikido.

Re: Kato Shihan, 8th dan, Aikikai, in Monterrey, Mexico, 6/2-6/3

San Nicolas de los Garza is a suburb of Monterrey. It is closer to the airport than the downtown area of Monterrey. We will be staying at the Howard Johnson in the MacroPlaza area.... It is really a tourity place at the Macro Plaza. Several of us will also be staying at hotels closer to the site of the seminar. There are really nice hotels in this area too. If you need information in Spanish contact either me (in the US) or Carlos Reyes Sanchez (Mexico).

This is a really good opportunity to study with a shihan who had direct instruction from Morihei Ueshiba O'Sensei for 15 years. Kato Shihan was not an uchidechi of the founder, but rather a student who took classes on a daily basis. Like you and me, Kato Sensei had a regular job during the daytime and took classes in the evenings and weekends since he was a boy of 19 years of age. Kato Shihan has taken instruction from all of the Ueshiba family since the 1954 and continues to teach at the hombu dojo in Tokyo as well as the Suginami Aikikai (his branch of dojos). I don't think anybody will get a better deal for this price ($60USD) at 3 training sessions. Kato Shihan speaks only Japanese and translation will be made available for both Spanish and English speakers....

Don't forget, if you are traveling into Mexico, DO NOT call your jo, bokken or tanto a weapon..... CAll them "sticks".... Otherwise you could be detained for quite awhile. Please bring you jo, bokken and tanto, but call them sticks at the Mexican immigration declaration....

Hope to see you in Monterrey!

If you're thinking about going, GO!!!!!!!
I have trained much with Kato Sensei in my aikido life. He is extremely skilled and carries pre-war methods in his waza. He is a living storybook of a certain dialectical aikido that will soon be generationally passed on. You should be one of the lucky ones to receive his teaching. I cannot make it. I'm encouraging anyone who can to go.
