Detailed information about the seminar will be published in early 2024

Last year, 2023, was very complex and we did not have the opportunity to hold Aikido Tendoryu seminars in Mexico for various reasons. What is the importance of the seminars? Usually the dojos have one or a few permanent teachers, and the students get used to our words and teaching style. It is to be expected that the students will stop listening because of the monotony. Moreover, if the same voice is always speaking, the ideas may be conveyed in the same way and everything becomes impoverished. Receiving teachers from other dojos allows us to get out of our echo chamber and enrich our perception.
It was nice to be able to train on the Horn again without any restrictions after four years. And so it was two intense weeks to fully concentrate on Aikido and learn from the experience of Kancho Kenji Shimizu and Dojocho Kenta Shimizu.
For those who want to participate next year, here we already have the dates for 2024:
Many of you already know the idyllically situated Kannon Onsen Hotel in Shimoda from the 50th anniversary course.
This is also the location of our annual Tendokan Dojo Seminar. And also this year we have a contingent for participants from abroad.

Date: 13-15 October 2023
2023 - The year of the hare has started well.
The kangeiko of the Tendokan was again as well attended as in the years before corona.
And soon, after a three-year break, spring courses will be held again in Germany and Serbia - led by Dojocho Kenta Shimizu.
The fact that the two traditional Herzogenhorn weeks are also not a matter of course has become clear to everyone in the long time associated with restrictions. In this sense, a reminder of the upcoming registration deadline for this year's Horn: February 15, 2023 - there are still some places available.

After a three-year break, a seminar finally took place again in Kannon Onsen, but with a few small changes. This time, the journey was self-organised and there was more time for bathing and conversation between the five training sessions. Techniques were assigned by lot to each room, which were then prepared by the group and presented in a small demonstration at the end, with Kensho-kun and Wakasensei as the highlight.
