Introducing: Tendoryu Aikido Mexico
Dec. 26, 2011

This is the first piece of a series planned until October, when we will have the 2nd Tendo World Seminar. Each month we would like to give one dojo the chance to introduce itself.

In November 2011 Wakasensei went to Mexico for teaching his first own seminar. He told us about the warm reception and the enthusiasm for Tendoryu Aikido he felt there.

Rodrigo Velazquez tells us about how Tendoryu Mexico has been developing from its start.

The Kannon Onsen hotel is located in the South of the Izu Peninsular. Remote from everyday life, inmidst green mountains and equipped with a spacious dojo.

There - where we already had the 1st Tendo World Seminar 2009 - we want to practice together, savour Japanese food and relax in the hotel owned hot spring.

And to make it as easy as possible we offer you this seminar as a complete package.

Tendokan Seminar 2011 – Kannon Onsen
Nov. 14, 2011

After a rainy start the warm autumn sun smiled upon us and we could not only learn more about aikido during the somewhat different than usual training, but also enjoy the nature outside.

On Saturday afternoon we were allowed to use the extensive garden again for a barbecue. Sitting and standing together in the green, far away from the daily routine, having grilled fish, vegetables, meat, yakisoba (fried noodles) and other delicious stuff, one had the leisure to get to know each other better.

This nice atmosphere and the feeling of the soft onsen water (hot spring) on the skin are having a lasting effect.

2nd tendo world aikido Seminar 2012 - preannouncement
Nov. 14, 2011

Due to the overall positive reactions we want to organize a second tendo world aikido seminar next year 2012.

The date is already set. Details will follow later. 19. - 22. October 2012 (Fri - Mon)

It will be a great opportunity to have an exchange with Tendoryu students from various countries. And as many of you already know the food is delicious and the hot spring is one of the best in Japan.

Summer 2011 – Shimizu Sensei in Germany and Italy
Sept. 30, 2011

The weather meant it well - blue skies and high temperatures.

In both weeks of Herzogenhorn you had again the opportunity to work on your technique and deepen your understanding of aikido – thanks to Shimizu Sensei’s demonstrations and explanations. Additionally on Tuesday and Thursday morning, before breakfast, everybody could learn from Wakasensei Kenta Shimizu what’s important for a good ukemi. He gave many hints on how to improve your way to take a fall. It was early in the morning, but nevertheless everybody accepted this challenge and participated. And later in the classes that followed with Shimizu Sensei you could try to apply what you have learned before.

Directly after Herzogenhorn there was a weekend seminar in Bad Säckingen, an idyllic little town right next to the Swiss border. The first class on Saturday was taught by Wakasensei Kenta Shimizu, sort of opening the seminar before Shimizu Sensei took over.

The last station in Europe was Milano. It was the first Tendoryu seminar in Italy and for most of the Italian participants the first opportunity to experience Shimizu Sensei in person. Full of concentration and enthusiastically was everybody then during practice on the tatami: beginners and advanced students, members from Italy, Germany, Serbia, Belgium and Slovenia (photo).

Seminar in Vladivostok (Russia)
May 6, 2011

Shimizu Sensei and Wakasensei Kenta Shimizu held a seminar in Vladivostok on April 29.-30. 2011.

It was the fourth visit to this Russian city. To make effective use of the short time the organizers arranged a challenging program. Such as a six hours class for adults on Saturday and a one and a half hours class for children. All participants however kept going with concentration and enthusiasm until the very end of the seminar.

In spite of the tight time frame there was some little time left for exploring the vicinity – on horseback.

This is a call to the members and friends of Tendoryu Aikido to support the people being hit by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
