Beyond Kokyuho Tenkan: Opening to Possibilities Kokyuho tenkan (or tai no henko) & kokyuho irimi are familiar warmups in many dojos. How about kokyuho omote; kokyuho ikkyo? How about a series from kosadori? ryotedori? Over the years we have developed a series of partner exercises that open the possibilities of technique from a variety of attacks. Valuable for learning basic movements as well as building skills for jiyu waza, our dojo offers these exercises to you – please join us! Where:

Sharon Seymour Sensei, Katsujinken Dojo Aikido 24/7: Living Your Practice “The purpose of the Art of Peace is to fashion sincere human beings; a sincere human being is one who has unified body and spirit, one who is free of hesitation or doubt, and one who understands the power of words.” This quotation from O Sensei challenges me to consider how to take more of my Aikido practice into my daily life. Come train with this challenge in mind. Share your stories of the exercises & techniques that have been most helpful and/or most puzzling for you as you move off the mat and into your everyday life.
