Dead-Sea Seminar - Community Call, No.2
October 22, 2016

This past Sunday I hosted the 2nd Dead Sea community call with my teaching partner, Patrick Cassidy. It was a little bittersweet because. Just as it is the last Dead Sea Seminar this year, this was also the last Dead Sea community call.

The topic of this call is “The Future Of Aikido”. Patrick and I explore the limitations of the current Aikido culture and the needs for a shift into a new paradigm. We lay out how we see that shift affecting Aikido for the individual, the community, the teacher-student relationship, organizations, and especially the art itself.

Dead-Sea Seminar - Community Call, No.1
September 26, 2016

Yesterday I hosted the first of 2 Dead Sea community calls, with my teaching partner Patrick Cassidy. We’ve hosted these calls for the past 3 years, both as a warm up for the Dead Sea Seminar (Nov. 17 – 19, 2016) and as a way to invite the global Aikido community to join gather together online for exploring the themes of our yearly event.

The topic of this call is “Returning To The Source”. Patrick and I cover such topics as O Sensei’s original spiritual realization, the source as an expression of Aikido, aligning with the deeper principles returns us to the source, and much more.

When You Have Spiritual Protection…

A Personal Story

It was early 1998, and I had just finished an eight-year phase of life, living in Japan. I had been studying Aikido full time with my teacher Morihiro Saito Sensei, at the famous Iwama dojo. Even though I had achieved a sense satisfaction in what I had accomplished during this time, there was also a subtle itch of wanting something more, something I wasn’t finding in my Aikido life in Japan.
