2017 Aikido seminars

3 01 2018

Wrap up of an year of travelling/training for Aikido, that it was certainly not bad. Unfortunately a change in my work, a change I wanted and I appreciate, has influenced my training schedule, reducing the amount of seminars I could attend, but even more the weekly practice sessions..

Still I definitively do not complain!

and 2 shorter participations:

And as usual, the start of my Aikido year in Trondheim:

14 – 15 January: Trondheim, weekend practicing with my local friends at Trondheim Aikido.

I practiced less days than in 2016, both because of traveling (next year I’ll carry along my keikogi more often) but also because of a knee problem during the summer (half June and full July basically no practice).

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Endo sensei, Rome: asked me to grab him for ushiro ryotedori exercise and after that and a couple of movements he turns to me and says: “Oh you are not so stiff”.. 🙂 made my day!
  • Nevelius sensei, Prague: asked me for uke then said to be stiff and after a second thought, he added “Oh, it should be easy you are naturally stiff”… 😦 made not my day!
