How does my way of teaching differ from others
We should exclude the frauds that throw people with „telepathy“ and act out similar sorts of nonsense, and compare my methods with methods of people who try and teach aikido seriously.
I started doing Aikido way back in 1972. After a month of training the first big question I had for my sensei was:
-How will I learn to defend from a hit when I myself don’t know how to hit?
Next week I started training Karate too. Then came Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing, Kick-boxing… A wide martial arts experience helped me learn the basic principles of Aikido faster and more easily, but through that, I also realized that the fundamental principles of almost all martial arts are the same.
How can You start?
After 2-3 years of basic training at any solid Dojo, all of the basics can be learned, then with our help, you can perfect the technique and bring it to a superb level.
What is holding you back
The slow pace that you and your sensei’s might be progressing at is in most cases to one thing and one thing alone. It is not incompetence like many should think. It is the austerity of the source of knowledge.
Here we don’t have that problem. Why?
We think that Aikido should be taught to whom ever wishes to learn it and as much as he want’s to learn it.
How things are going now, because of the rise of fraud Aikido masters, the martial art will in the near future be forgotten.
With openness and transparency, we would like to attract more people to Aikido and consolidate Aikido in the spotlight of world-renowned martial arts.
How we are different
Characteristics that make our work different is that the holds are done strongly and firmly from the moment when the person practiced precisely enough. With a strong attack the quality of the technique is tested and this way mistakes are noticed quickly and corrected immediately.
When it comes to atemi (hit attacks?), they are done strongly and quickly, so that the person who is practising develops motor actions that are ingrained into his memory and are manifested automatically in a real situation.
Also, your sparring partners practise the same way so that risk of injuries are minimalized on both sides.
Techniques are studied to the smallest detail, up to the point where it becomes precise enough and strong enough. That way we get serious results in a short time.
Due to the austerity of most great Aikido masters, it was impossible to master the martial art in a reasonable timeframe. For me personally, it took 33 years to climb to the top of the mountain because I had to take many sideroads and seemingly unconquerable obstacles. When at the top, suddenly I had a clear picture and all the secrets were brought to the light.
From then on my main goal was to find ways to quickly and efficiently transfer knowledge, which made a big commotion among the high ranking Aikido masters.
