Re: Dan Harden workshop in Rochester, NY

There will be people here who have attended other workshops-including the host dojo- so there will be a nice blending of work being covered.

Date: March, 26-27 2011
Location: Rochester Phoenix Aikido Club
3rd Floor, 34 Elton St.
Rochester, NY 14607

This seminar is a continuation of the workshops already taking place with Dan with advance level students and teachers. Dan has been focusing his efforts on teachers, this seminar is continuation of his efforts in making his research into the Japanese arts and the resultant training practices of his private dojo available to students. The goal is to offer a workshop in a neutral environment, with an emphasis on learning and understanding internal power and aiki in a global sense, while undertaking the difficult task of taking that first step into personal training and integration of the concepts into your own art.

The work shop will cover introductory basics of the system Dan has developed and used successfully with hundreds of practitioners from a wide range of martial arts. Dan will outline the training in such a way as to make the relevancy to martial movement immediate, clear and accessible. Included will be:
* A presentation of how the martial arts take advantage of natural and common postural failures and methods Dan has been taught and developed for building a bujutsu body that moves antithetical to the "principles" most martial arts use as their foundation for defeating the common body frame.
* How the trained body can begin to take care of itself automatically while delivery non-dedicated force to create openings in a live environment.
* An emphasis on specific training tools (solo and paired) to develop internal power, and specifically how it relates to aiki connections in a martial context.
* Creating and maintaining a structure supported on all sides and how to strengthen it with breath training exercises.
The material covered; while benefiting aikido greatly will not be "specific" to the aiki arts, like Aikido and Daito ryu, but any grappling or striking art, so teachers from other disciplines are welcome.

This will be a closed seminar with no pictures, video, or visitors allowed. Participants are required to fill out an application available by e-mailing Dan @ homeoffice@charter.net for further details and to be considered for a spot. People may or may not be accepted by Dan's sole discretion.
Seminar fee is $175.00 for both days (no partial attendance or single days) Payments can be made by check or by paypal at homeoffice@charter.net
.
Payment in full is required and due on or before Match 11th to register and reserve a place for the event. There is no registration at the door and it is first come first served. When registration is reached it will be closed with no further notice

Sorry you can't make it Budd. See you when you get out of hibernation

We are getting close to full registration including 12 people from my own dojo. It's great to have so many of our members interested in this type of training. And then we have Howard Popkin visiting the week after. Does it get much better? Yes, off to San Antonio Sunday for a week in the Sun

Re: Dan Harden workshop in Rochester, NY

Dan, Thank you for a great weekend. We had such a diverse group, but the structure of the seminar made it so everyone got a great deal out of it. Everyone got ample one on one time with you and they all left with a big smile on their face. The energy and enthusiasm continued into our Monday night aikido class, which was attended by all the club members that attended the seminar. We are all fired up now for Howard's seminar next weekend.

Re: Dan Harden workshop in Rochester, NY (3/26-3/27/2011)

@Howard - got the invite on facebook, but its a bit of a long drive.

@Dan - lemme know if you're going to be in my neck of the woods. I'd love to compare notes about the quote from Ellis Amdur's book (hidden in plain site, i think) that mentions 'developing a precision ruler within the body'. I believe we have a similar concept. It eoukd be great to discuss!
