There will be an enbukai or demonstration of Aikido held for the public on Saturday, June 4 at 5pm at the Clay Road Family YMCA, 10655 Clay Road, Houston, Texas, 77081. Instructors from various Aikido organizations such as the Aikido Association of America, Aikido Schools of Ueshiba, the Ki Society, the Shudokan Aikido Association, and various independent dojos will come together in the spirit of friendship to show their arts and to do as the Founder of Aikido used to say when he said that we should have, "Respect, peace, getting together in a friendly spirit." The public is invited.

Re: Friendship Demonstration In Houston, 6/4

The Seminar at the Shudokan School of Aikido with Shihan Hiroshi Kato had over 100 participants in Houston, Tx on the weekend of June 4 and 5. Aikidoka came from all affiliations to participate in the Aikido Friendship Seminar and Friendship Demonstration that followed. Represented were instructors from the United States Aikido Federation, the Aikido Association of America, Aikido Schools of Ueshiba, the Ki Society, Seidokan Aikido and the Shudokan Aikido Association along with many independent dojos from throughout the U.S.
The Texas tour of Shihan Hiroshi Kato continues in Houston with training on the evenings of June 7 and 9 and the the following weekend in Corpus Christi,Tx on June 11 and 12.

Re: Friendship Demonstration In Houston, 6/4

Aikido of Midland and myself personally want to thank Jorge for the nice seminar he put on. We had two days of great training with a truly skilled and unique master of the art of aikido. It is a pleasure to study from someone truly willing to share what he knows and who does so in a pleasant and fun manner. Kato Sensei's willingness to talk about O'Sensei and share his experiences is refreshing. His technique is powerful and relaxed and demonstrates excellent biomechanics with little effort. For any of you who can make his seminars, it is well worth the trip. It is not often you can receive such quality training for what you are willing or able to donate. Thanks Jorge.

Re: Friendship Demonstration In Houston, 6/4

Thank you John for bringing your group from Midland which is a long drive from here. We had folks from Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, Houston,the Rio Grande Valley and others that were from out of the State. It was great seeing old friends and making so many new ones.It was also great to study with Kato sensei. We hope to make the next Friendship seminar bigger and better.
Best
