Seminar with Toby Threadgill-sensei: November 5 - 6, 2010

Greetings All,

Aikido of Northern Virginia will host a seminar with Toby Threadgill-sensei on November 5 and 6, 2010. There will be three classes:

Friday: 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Saturday: 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Saturday: 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

The cost of the seminar is $100 for the entire seminar or $50 per class.

The subject of the workshop will be the definition and development of aiki from the perspective of a classical Japanese martial art, and integrating that understanding into aikido. Although the workshop will focus primarily on empty-hand technique, weapons may be used.

Toby Threadgill-sensei began training under Takamura Yukiyoshi, headmaster of Takamura-ha Shindo Yoshin-ryu (TSYR), in 1985. In 1992 he founded the Soryushin Dojo and in 1994 was appointed a branch director of the Takamura-ha Shindo Yoshin Kai. In 1999, he was one of three people to be awarded a menkyo kaiden (teaching license) in Takamura-ha Shindo Yoshin-ryu. Following the passing of Takamura Yukiyoshi in 2000, he was asked by the other TSYR branch directors to accept the position of administrative head (kaicho) of the Takamura-ha Shindo Yoshin Kai. He currently oversees instruction at the Shindo Yoshin Kai Hombu Dojo in Evergreen, Colorado, and maintains a busy international teaching schedule. There is more information on this classical system at the Takamura-ha Shindo Yoshin Kai web site (http://www.shinyokai.com/home.htm) and there is a very good interview with Threadgill-sensei also available on-line at http://www.aikidojournal.com/article...ght=threadgill.

Registration, including payment in full, is due no later than October 22. Attendance is limited to 40 participants. There will be no registration at the door.

A flyer, registration form, and waiver are at http://www.aikido-nova.org/Threadgill2010.pdf.

See you on the mat!
