Aikido practitioners, are you ready for a fresh perspective?


Deconstructing Ikkyo is the first in a series of workshops that have been years in the making.  I have developed it specifically for the Aikido practitioner as a method of pressure testing accepted norms, critically revaluating conventional thinking, and filling in the gaps wherever possible. It is not my intention to present this material from the negative aspect of what does not work, rather, our purpose for the time we spend together will be to reimagine the possible. I believe that even a modest willingness to explore beyond the basic shape of our everyday practice can bring a new understanding that is easy to apply and explore over a lifetime. I very much look forward to examining those insights alongside you for this very special workshop.


We’ll see you there!
