Don’t forget next weekend Greg O’Connor Sensei will be giving a seminar May 23 and 24 at Aikido’Ka!
Thank you, Jamie Zimron Sensei for the great seminar last night!
The seminar was a fundraiser for Aiki Extensions and it went wonderful. Everyone had a great time. Since I had laryngitis during the class, I didn’t train. I just took pictures and ran the video camera. So, we have scads of photos. I’ll be posting them as I get a chance.
Jamie Sensei began training in 1976, and established the Aikido Arts Center of San Francisco (1980-1994). She co-founded the Association of Women Martial Arts Instructors and Middle East Aikido Project, and serves on the board of Aiki Extensions. An LPGA Golf Pro, Somatic Psychologist, Corporate Speaker and Citizen’s Diplomat, Jamie Sensei is bringing Aikido’s ‘peaceful power’ principles to people both on and off the mat. The creator of KiAi Golf and The KiAi Way, she is esteemed worldwide for her dynamic teaching style and unique ability to guide people to newfound health, harmony and success.
In case you don’t know Michael Sensei, he is my direct aikido teacher. He’s my teacher because he’s a great person and an incredible aikidoist. He is tremendous fun. He has a great sense of humor. His seminars are always a blast. His aikido is simply amazing.
Saturday evening we’ll have a potluck/birthday party. Sydney Manka has been training with us since she was 12 years old. Saturday evening we’ll be celebrating Sydney’s 18th birthday!
