SEMINARS WITH SABURO TAKAYASU 7 DAN SHIHAN THE 13 APRIL and 14-15 APRIL 2018

Welcome to you all!

Sedokan Aikido Dojo Växjö and the Aikido section of Mifune are pleased to welcome Takayasu Sensei, 7 dan shihan, back to Sweden to continue presenting his view of O’sensei and Morihiro Saito Sensei’s aikido legacy. We that have participated in the past one or two seminars know Takayasu Sensei’s eager of sharing his understanding amongst the participants.

I would like to share as much of the knowledge and understanding that I have in aikido so that people at the end of the day might know why they present a technique in this way and not in another way. Students need to know different teachers’ aikido in depth to have the freedom of choice. I am grateful of sharing my knowledge with you (Quote from Takayasu, seminar of 2014).

Saburo Takayasu Shihan has lived in Sydney and taught Aikido for more than fourth years.  He was born in Kanto area made famous as the site for many of the Japan’s oldest martial arts schools.  He studied at Ibaraki University and trained at both the university’s Aikido dojo and Iwama Dojo from 1967 to 1973 under the tutelage of his teacher, Morihiro Saito Sensei 9th dan. Takayasu Sensei is actively following Morihiro Saito Sensei’s wish to preserve Aikido the way it was taught to him by O-Sensei and encourages all students and senior instructors to maintain purity of technique and martial spirit.  He believes Aikido training should be strong and martially effective, beneficial and strengthening for the body and mind and at the same time develop the underlying principles of Aiki.

This camp is divided in two parts, Pre-seminar Friday afternoon and Main-seminar Saturday and Sunday.
