For the sixth time, Kuribayashi Shihan came from Hombu Dojo in Tokyo to Oslo to teach us. We had visitors from around the country as well as from abroad.
This year also, Kuribayashi Shihan was gracious enough to hold a black belt training on Friday morning in OAK’s dojo at Hasle before the main seminar. It was of course great to yet again have a Hombu instructor in our dojo, and very good keiko for all the yudansha people. Afterwards, there was lunch in the dojo.
As usual it was intensive practice, and good atmosphere on the mat during the regular seminar. The main message from Kuribayashi Shihan was that one had to develop as an aikidoka with a larger repertoire and greater weight. He compared it to white bread and dark bread, where the former is a lighter and less rich variety of bread, while the latter is heavier and more rich.
Thanks to Kuribayashi Shihan for teaching, to Hombu dojo, and to all participants for contributing to a great seminar and helping with the mat carrying before and after the seminar! And last but not least, thanks to NKF for the support! Without them, the seminar would not have been possible.
