Visiting the Kannon Onsen – Aikido at a very special place
Dec. 16, 2014
A family growing together – the Tendoryu Family

by Bodo-Klaus Eidmann – Munich / TSV Grosshadern

Solid wood, stone from the mountains,wonderful air and healing water! When you love nature you will find pure budo luxury at the Kannon Onsen. The bus takes 3 to 4 hours along the coastal road from lively Tokyo to tranquil Kannon Onsen on the Izu peninsular. Shortly before the destination the participants transfer into smaller buses, because the road is just too small for big coaches.

In April 2014 two ladies from Russia visited the Tendokan and trained intensively – one whole month. Here you can read about their impressions.

This year I got the lucky chance to visit Japan that is mainly the Tendokan of Tendoryu Aikido.

That short piece of my life became the most important, lively and replete one in the last four years.

The trip to Tendokan in Tokyo was very significant to me. There was a time in my life when the wish of more understanding of aikido appeared and it was very important to continue study.

In Tendokan I spent 32 valuable days in trainings. Every day I could study the aikido art under Shimizu Sensei, Wakasensei Kenta Shimizu, Kotaro Nagai Sensei and other Tendokan teachers.

(Tendokan / Birgit)

The numerous participants of the seminars could again benefit from Shimizu Sensei’s experience and Wakasensensei’s youthful vigor and at the same time learn much about Tendoryu Aikido.

That it is not only about movement, but also about working on yourself - bringing your emotions in balance and thereby gaining courage and strength.

Congratulations to all newly graded students:

Remembering 2013 - by Wakasensei Kenta Shimizu
Jan. 24, 2014

For me the year 2013 has passed in no time.

There were many seminars held abroad and I feel I have learnt a great deal. I gained things and I was confronted with new tasks. The seminars took place in six countries all together - including the seminars of Shimizu Sensei. That is Germany, Serbia, Slovenia, Russia, Denmark and Mexico.

I want to express my gratitude to the aikido students of each seminar locations for all their efforts.

Thank you very much.
