This week’s practice focus is on “THE BRUSH, BOKEN, AND BROOM”. There is a strong correlation between the BRUSH, BOKEN, AND BROOM in Aikido. We will creatively practice all 3 this week. The calligraphy is done with the BRUSH and writes the deeper messages of Aikido. The Art of Aikido is aligned with clear Boken movements that demonstrate clarity. The Broom is done for Misogi to purify and clean the Dojo for all!
***Tuesday at 5pm & 6pm: The Brush and Boken practice. An exciting and artful practice of using a brush and boken to create! You can bring a boken and get Osensei’s calligraphy written, you can contribute to a large scroll we are making, get a T-shirt or Gi with meaningful writings, or you can just practice and learn the correlation. It will be creative and expansive! Bring a brush, bring a boken!
***Thursday: It is EVOLUTION DAY IN ALL OF THE CLASSES! We will work on your material for your next level, and free form Aikido!
***SATURDAY 9:45AM: MISOGI DAY!!! WE PURIFY AND CLEAN THE WHOLE JOINT! SET UP THE DOJO AND DO PURIFYING BOKEN CUTS! THIS EVENT ADDS TREMENDOUS MOMENTUM TO THE DOJO AND IS ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL TRAINING DAYS IN THE DOJO! WEAR REGULAR CLOTHES AND BE READY FOR BOKENS AND BROOMS! GREAT FOCUS AND GREAT COMMARDERIE! WE WILL HAVE A BAR-B-Q TO FOLLOW!
Let’s have a great week of training! Vince Sensei
