One of the greatest honors that Shindai holds is the ability to host Saotome Sensei every year. The seminar includes a gathering of old and new friends training in Aiki, strengthening our Aikido family, but we do it at the feet of Saotome Shihan. Our Shihan
Saotome Sensei is not to be missed! Serious Aikidoka will make every effort to spend time in the presence of the few remaining direct students of O’Sensei at any opportunity. Those opportunities are waning. Saotome Sensei at 80 stands as the most significant of the founders few inside Uchi Deshi/direct students alive today. at 81 he is still vital, teaching and growing. We have a chance to learn at the feet of this great teacher. All we need to do is make the effort.
I hope we seen you in April
