REED13 registrations are open for our August seminar with William Reed Sensei on reed13.aikidorepublic.com/registration
Thankyou for the very strong support and intrest we have received in the past few weeks, locally with offers of mats and help on the weekend and incredible intrest from interstate colleagues. We have finalised a very exciting programme with Reed Sensei starting on the Friday night thru to Sunday afternoon, we will also have opportunity to practice our Ki extension skills on the Saturday night with barefoot bowls.
In asking our selves what we would like to learn from Reed Sensei, together with his support, deep knowledge of aikido and the latest updates from Maruyama sensei (who is preparing him as we speak) we hope the seminar program, focusing on the evolution of Aikido Yuishinkai will be enlightening to all. In preparing the programme we have learned of Sensei’s meeting with the current headmaster of the Shinkage Ryu sword school. The further refinement of Maruyama Senseis levels of practice (3 for the body and 3 for the mind) with the introduction of Nentai as a progressive step from Ryutai to the higher levels, as well as Maruyama sensei’s directive for him to undertake Nanba training and bring back to Aikido Yuishinkai (its similarity to the current internal strength movement in Aikido is profound). Full programme details are on http://reed13.aikidorepublic.com/seminar-programme
Preregistration (40 early bird places)
We are offering an early bird registration, by way of deposit on line at reed13.aikidorepublic.com/registration, as a thankyou for early support ( limited to 40 places) this will help us finalise our upfront commitments. We have also striven to keep costs as low as we can for all registrants. Full registration is $190 though this is reduced considerably through early bird, traveller and other discounts, single day and class options are also available.
We hope locals can offer a bed of two for the weekend to help out our interstate visitors (3 houses in the dojo are already full), who have already contacted us about places. If you are able to give back through offering a bed or looking for a bed contact Alison and Eric on firstname.lastname@example.org A of number of local motels and public transport directions have been provided as well.
