HKF Special Seminar at Ki Society HQ Japan (Tochigi)
HKF Camp 2015 was held at Ki Society HQ Japan (Tochigi) from August 31(Monday) till September 3rd (Friday) 2015. HKF stands for Hawaii Ki Federation, which is a branch federation of Shinshin Toitsu Aikido Kai in Hawaii, USA.
During this camp, branch Dojos from Germany, Netherlands, Spain as well as USA came and practiced together.
Due to many participants coming for World Camp which has been held annually at HQ, we decided that from this year we would hold smaller seminars for branch Dojos, Societies and Federations, so that I could teach and interact with every member that came for the seminar. For HKF Camp, 60 members in total including HQ members and instructors came and participated in the training.
The themes covered and taught during this camp were: (Ki is always extending and exchanging), (Ken and Hanmi), (Hanmi with Wazas) – Having No Openings with Aikido Techniques, (Irimi and Tengkan), (Kokyu with Dosa) – Relationship between Breathing and Movements, (Ki Breathing), (Ki Meditation) and (Kiatsu).
During the 4 days of practicing together at Seminars and having Gatherings after classes, we were able to spend a lot of time together with all members. We sincerely would like to thank Chief Instructor Christopher Curtis Sensei and all members for their efforts in helping to make this seminar a success. We have also decided to hold this seminar during the same time again next year, HKF Camp 2016.
We will be having more seminars at HQ soon with members from other branch Dojos, Societies and Federations. With these Seminars coming up, I am looking forward to teaching and meeting all members and hopefully being able to instruct each member personally.
