The children’s class will be restarting this Sunday, 16th September at 5:30pm-7:00pm.
There will be no children’s class on the 1st July as I’ll be away at the summer seminar with Doshi Yoshigasaki in Burton.
The adult classes on Tuesday and Thursday will carry on as normal.
Doshu Yoshigasaki will be teaching again in Scotland this year between the 7th and 9th September. This will be the 30th year that Doshu has been teaching in Scotland. Instructors from the London Ki Aikido club will be attending the course this year.
Details of that seminar can be found on the British Ki Society website.
The Alness dojo was opening of the dojo in 1987 by Mr Ken Williams. Here is a video of the seminar that accompanied that event.
Here is an excerpt from Tohei Sensei’s Book of Ki where he relays his first encounter with Ueshiba Morihei
‘The students attacked him and were easily thrown. It looked fake. Then Master Ueshiba turned to me and said, “Take off your jacket and attack me.” I tried to grab him, but the next thing I knew, I was lying on the mats. I could not figure out how I had been thrown. I had not felt force applied to any part of my body. Had he done so, I would have able to think of a defence, but I had felt no force at all.’
