Hello there. I'm a newbie here and in Aikido (only had about nearly a year in Aikido so far). I live in Singapore and my club just got news that the doshu was invited over by Aikikai to our country to hold a three day seminar.
Now the problem is that the seminar costs $250. That's quite a lot to me as a student and I'm not sure if it's worth paying for. Then again, the last time the doshu came here was 20 years ago. He passed away and the doshu coming here is a new one... I don't know anything about him.
So has anyone here had the experience of meeting with the doshu? If so, is it worth it to go for the 3 day seminar? I would really love to go, but I really would would hate to part with the cash.
