Learning basic sword skills

August 30th – September 2nd 2019
—————————————————-
George Ledyard, Aikido 7th Dan, will conduct the 2019 4-Day Sword Intensive in Nashville August 30th - September 2nd 2019

This four day block of instruction will focus on the aiki sword work of Mitsugi Saotome Shihan. We will cover the 12 Kumi-tachi of Saotome Sensei that are required for testing up to Ni-dan in detail. Also, we will provide principle based instruction on Saotome Sensei's Two Attacker Forms, his Two Sword Forms, and we will also do daily work with the shinai (bamboo swords).

This is a unique training event. It is open to any student of Ai-kido who has solid basic sword skills but it is instructor level content. It is particularly geared to help dojo-cho and instruc-tors teaching sword at their dojos take their skills up several levels. It is intensive work. If anyone feels that this wasn't the best sword training they've had, I will refund their registration fee. All affiliations are welcome.

We are pleased to welcome Golberg Sensei for a two day Daito Ryu Aikijujitsu Seminar. This seminar is PRE-PAY ONLY by June 15, 2019. $200 for the weekend, $125 per day. Please follow the link below to register. Space is limited.

Daito Ryu is a link to the art of Morihei Ueshiba as taught through his teacher Sokaku Takeda. This class will provide a new perspective on the evolution of the art and your own practice. It is a 1,200 year old samurai martial art that has directly influenced the development of many popular martial arts: Shorinji Kempo, Hakko Ryu Jujitsu, Hapkido and most famously Aikido. This seminar would be beneficial to any martial artist.

Roy Goldberg Sensei is one of the highest ranked Daito Ryu Aiki Jujitsu practitioners outside of Japan and is the senior student of Hayawo Kiyama Shihan.

On February 9, 2013, our dojo was reduced by one student, namely, Kevin Sparkman Sensei.  Sparkman Sensei taught his last class at the dojo before an audience of his students and supporting friends.  The class was enjoyed by everyone.  Afterwards a plaque was presented thanking Sensei for his dedication to the art and to this school.  He had been a part of this dojo since 1989.  Sparkman Sensei decided to retire from teaching at the dojo for personal reasons.  Though he no longer teaches, his presence will always be felt.

Bushin Dojo will now accept students between the ages of 7 and 12 years for their youth class. Classes will not only focus on martial technique using Aikido principles, but will also focus on mental discipline, self motivation, self confidence, self-esteem, etiquette and manners.  Martial arts training is also a good way for children to also learn coordination and balance which helps prevent injuries should they also participate in sports.  The confidence and self discipline they develop will help with school work and may improve grades.  Most of all, children who participate in martial arts can learn to defend themselves against school bullying and child predators.  Anyone interested in our program please contact Janay at janay@dojoofnashville.com or (754) 800-DOJO.

A special thanks to everyone who got together to celebrate Sensei receiving Sixth Dan.
Although some could not attend it was a great opportunity for the students to get to
talk off the mat and get to know each other better.

It was nice to have Sifu (Chuck Gross), Pam and Molly there. It was a special night for everyone.
The incredible cake Robin made for the occasion was breathtaking. Sensei was unhappy that there
were too many of us to sit at the same table but no one was made to feel left out of the festivities.
Obviously it's simply impossible to seat that many people in the same room.

We all enjoy the family we're a part of and look forward to any off mat time we get to spend together.
Again, thank you to everyone who made the night special.

Congratulations Sensei!

"I am thankful for the guidance I continue to receive from the Budoka around me.
I couldn't be enjoying this journey without them."  Kevin Sparkman Sensei

"Don't quit, don't die, be discerning."

"No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up."
