Mike Sigman in Hawaii July 23rd and 24th 2011

Mike will be teaching an informal workshop devoted to an examination of the theory and practice of training internal strength. Two-person and solo exercises focused on developing and conditioning internal strength will be introduced. Breathing and structural-development exercises and suggested training approaches will be discussed and practiced. Participants of all backgrounds and martial arts are welcome.

Mike Sigman has more than 45 years of martial training in judo, Okinawan karate, Aikido, Taijiquan, and many other Chinese martial arts. Since 1975 Mike has devoted his time to gathering information and training methods for the body skills surrounding all the physical abilities of ki/kokyu/jin power and in the conditioning methods (both hard and soft) that are involved in the body/mind training of breathing methods. He has taught many workshops for Aikido students around the world.

Mike is well known in Internal Martial Arts circles from his Internal Strength Seminars given around the country, was the editor/publisher of "Internal Strength" magazine and has written numerous articles and given numerous workshops in the U.S., Australia, Europe, and Scandinavia. He is at the forefront of a movement among internal martial arts enthusiasts, teachers, experts and amateurs which seeks to demystify the power generation that has made Ba Gua, Xing Yi, Tai Ji and Liu Ho Pa Fa famous.

The registration form is available from http://www.aikidohawaii.org/whats_new.html

Contact me for questions - hope to see you all there!

Best,

Chris

Re: Mike Sigman in Hawaii July 23rd and 24th 2011

All of us in Hawaii would like to thank Mike for coming out here and giving a great workshop.

The workshop was a lucid and well-organized presentation of the basics of internal power, I think that we all found it enjoyable and instructive. I'm hoping to have him back again in the future, if he can make himself face the heat again .

There are a few photos of the workshop on the Gallery page at http://aikidosangenkai.org/

Best,

Chris

I enjoyed the workshop very much, so many thanks to Chris and Gregg for putting it together... and thanks to everyone who was there, particularly the ones who came from so far away. The dojo, with it's sliding-slats ventilation windows is a classic and a beauty; I felt like I was training back in the 1940's (from pictures I've seen of the old dojos).

Best.

Mike
