Website for Seminars in Japan.

Does anyone know of a good website that lists Aikikai seminars in Japan?

Re: Website for Seminars in Japan.

Perhaps I should clarify. What I am looking for is some resource that might list various seminars around the country held by(preferably) Aikikai Shihan. Hombu or not. I am aware that there are lots of classes daily at Hombu and I try to get there about once a month. Doshu recently taught about thirty minutes from where I am currently living and I knew nothing about it until after the fact. I would love to find some online resource so that I could stay informed about such events.

Re: Website for Seminars in Japan.

If you're interested in Endo shihan's aikido, he has a seminar in Nagoya, in the Meirinjuku dojo not too far from Hamamatsu, February 21 - 22, 2009. The dojocho is Sobue Mitsuru, 7th dan, (Phone) 090-9930-1063. The address of Meirin juku is: 8-8 3-Chome, Kanayama, Naka-Ku, Nagoya-Shi 460-0022, JAPAN. Endo's 2009 seminar schedule can be found at http://homepage3.nifty.com/aikido_sa...nai2009-e.html.

Thanks Raul. Yes Nagoya is very close. I was able to take one class with Endo Shihan at the Hombu on Christmas eve and I would love to see more of his Aikido.

I'm afraid that there is no such resource. My experience is that Japan is much more 'territorial' than other countries with respect to aikido. The shibu-cho is king in his castle and does not take kindly to visitors. Since my dojo is independent, we can invite whom we like, but the shihans whom we do invite are well known to me and my instructor colleagues. Actually, since Hiroshima has 'problems', quite a few visiting shihans come here, but there is no central resource for announcing these visits. It is done by word of mouth and via individual dojo websites.

Best wishes,

PAG

Re: Website for Seminars in Japan.

Peter, I can't say, based on my own limited experience here, that I am surprised. At the club where I do most of my practice it seems that no one makes it a point to train with any other teachers except the one time a year that Kanazawa Shihan from Hombu comes here to teach and administer gradings. If anyone has links to any specific Shihan's teaching schedules or seminar annoucements and would like to post them here as Raul did, I know I and I'm sure others would be most greatful.
