USA National Seminar for Instructors and Members in Las Vegas
The Las Vegas National Seminar was held from the 26th of June (Thursday) to the 29th of June (Sunday). I taught all the classes for the seminar which was held over 4 days.
There were 120 participants for the seminar which came from Dojos all over the USA including many instructors and Chief Instructors of Ki Societies and Ki Federations. The venue for this seminar was at the University of Nevada- Las Vegas (UNLV), 300 mats was laid out in the gym for the practice sessions. The participants also stayed in the dormitory rooms of the campus giving the seminar a feel of being at an Aikido camp.
The seminar held on the 26th of June (Thursday) was for Chief Instructors, Instructors as well as Examiners. From the 27th of June (Friday) till the 29th of June (Sunday), the seminars were open to all members from beginners to Instructors.
The themes that I used to teach for techniques at the Seminar this year is as follows – “Moving from One Point”, “Keep Focus with Basic Posture”, “Respect Ki Movement” as well as “Unify Breathing and Action”.
The USA National Seminar 2014 was a success and I really appreciate the efforts of Northern California Ki Society who organized and managed the event as well as other Ki Societies and members who contributed into making this seminar a success.
This time 6 participants including members and Instructors from Japan attended the Seminar in Las Vegas. In 2018, this Seminar will be held in Las Vegas again and we hope more members from Japan and around the world can attend and participate in this event.
