Toby Threadgill-sensei in Northern Virginia, May 9 - 11

Greetings All,

Aikido of Northern Virginia will host a seminar with Toby Threadgill-sensei May 9 - 11, 2014. There will be four classes:

Friday: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Saturday: 10:00 am - 1:00 pm; 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Sunday: 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

The cost of the seminar is $150 for the entire seminar or $60 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 at http://www.shinyokai.com/home.htm.

The seminar will be held at Northern Virginia Ki Aikido just outside the Washington D.C. Beltway (I-495) in Merrifield, VA near Fairfax. The dojo's address is 2929E Eskridge Road, Fairfax, VA. Please see their web site at http://novakiaikido.org/ for directions.

Registration, including payment in full, is due no later than April 30, 2014. Attendance is limited to 40 participants, with preference going to those who register for the entire seminar. There will be no registration at the door. A flyer, registration form, and waiver are at http://www.aikido-nova.org/Threadgill2014.pdf.

See you on the mat!

Jim

Hi Tony,

Thanks for asking --- there will not be any practice with iaito. Bokken and tanto will be sufficient. See you on the mat!
