Aikido thrives in Bali

by Nur Aminah

“… Rai Wibawa, the senior martial art practitioner who founded Dojo Samurai and currently serves as the head of Aikido Bali, disclosed that the number of local Aikido practitioners had steadily increased…

…“Since 2004, we have always invited Seki Shoji Shihan [7th Dan] to Bali to provide the practitioners here with training and valuable input. Master Seki has become the role model for the island’s Aikido practitioners,” he said.

During a formal training session at Dojo Samurai on Saturday, Seki repeatedly impressed upon the attending practitioners that Aikido was far more than just a martial art. Read More

Thinking of a Miracle. XI Seminar, 2006

Thinking of a Miracle

Several times of late I’ve argued with different people about what a miracle is.
Certainly, there are different opinions.

Is a miracle something unthinkable, something unimaginable, something impossible to understand?
Or is it something that ties the world we are used to with something greater? Sort of a reminder that there is something else out there?
Or is a miracle just some attribute of a fairy-tale? So that life is a little easier, so that there is something to tell a child at bed-time?

A four-dimensional unity

Each seminar Seki sensei teaches in Moscow is, first and foremost, an event for which of us starts preparing long before it actually begins. Strictly speaking, right from the day when the previous seminar is over.

This is a familiar feeling: we have just said good-bye, having finished the last class of the seminar, and, over the regret of the days which have passed so quickly (maybe the speed of time changes in these days?), over the delight of new understanding of certain aspects, there arises the thought: When is the next seminar? What is it going to be like?

X Seminar of S. Seki Shihan in Moscow, November, 2005.

Impessions of seminar participants.

This is not the first time I’ve attended Seki sensei’s seminar, so I will not reiterate what I’ve written before: the precision, the power, the conciseness, the gentle attitude: I’ll try to express things that struck me in particular during this year’s seminar.

First and foremost, I am deeply grateful for the fact that Seki sensei has started to add verbal explanations when demonstrating the technique. Read More

Seminar Impressions

Douglas Marshall (USA), 20 October 2002

The days leading up to the most recent seminar with Seki Sensei were like the days before Christmas (in the U.S.) when I was young. The anticipation made the preceding days go by slowly, and the night before the first day of the seminar I could hardly sleep. Read More
