Aiki is - the life force of the universe united with the ki of our little self.
A technique (waza) that originates by the unification of oneself with the universe is aikido. You harmonize your ki not only with your opponent, but with the life force of the universe.
I think everybody could feel the flow of his ki at this seminar location, the Kannon Onsen. In midst unspoiled nature Tendoryu members of all countries connected to one unity and it developed into a wonderful seminar. The landlady of the Kannon Onsen hotel and the employees admired the truly budo-minded spirit of all students.
I want to thank you very much for having come all the way from so afar. And I wish the feeling of this seminar will help you in your further training.

In May we want to introduce a dojo in the South of Germany. From the head of dojo Robert Hundshammer we hear that the idyllic location in the countryside offers not only advantages.
The Tendokan and its students are already looking forward to welcome participants from all over the world in autumn to the 2. Tendo World Seminar in Japan.
The Kannon Onsen Hotel is located on Izu Peninsula southwest of Tokyo, in midst a very natural environment, which has not been hit by the catastrophe last year (earthquake, tsunami, nuclear accident).
Apart from a few places in Fukushima you can travel everywhere in Japan without hesitation, drink tap water and eat all what you can buy.
This month we learn from Iztok Šišernik about the development of the aikido club ‘Branik’ and how it came into existence.
This is the second piece of a series planned until October, when we will have the 2nd Tendo World Seminar. Each month we would like to give one dojo the chance to introduce itself. This time Eckhardt Hemkemeier will tell us about his dojo the Seishinkan in Hamburg/Germany.
An AIKIDO impression by Axel Bergemann
It’s nice to be back in Japan.
I sit together with Shimizu Sensei and Birgit in the Tendokan office. In front of me a slim cup of tea and one cookie, in japanese style carefully packed.
A small bite and all of a sudden this tiny cookie catch’s me by surprise.
