We use our Facebook page as the main location for our updates, events announcements and other activities. You can see a copy of Facebook messages on right side on our homepage. From time to time we will do a summary post here on our homepage. So what did happen since our last update?
We had to say goodbye to our dear, very loved friend Martin Bo Jensen.
We had a great graduation of Jesper Kaagaard 4-th dan and Jesper Thomsen 1-st dan at Aalborg Aikido Dojo. Congratulations! Sensei Kim Rasmussen was kind to teach a training pass after graduation.
Then in June Gustav Rasmussen was graduated for 3 kyu. Congratulations!
In August a few of us attended the annual Aikido Shugio with sensei Fredrik Snell. This time it was held in Mora.
In the end of September took place the annual seminar by sensei Fredrik Snell in Nordjylland, Thisted.
In October all Nordjylland clubs were visited by our President of Dansk Aikido Union (DAF) – sensei Keith Olen Barger.
Then the we attended a great annual seminar in Holbæk with Shihan Ulf Evenås.
In November our Dojo cho sensei Johnny Sørensen together with sensei Fredrik Snell and several other aikidokas from Scandinavia went to attend Aikido trainings in Japan. Isoyama sensei is now 82, but he still is going strong!
Later the same month we had a great common training seminar in Odder where we had attenders and teachers from Aikido Dojo Svendborg, Odder Aikido, Aalborg Aikido Klub, Aikido Dojo Aalborg, and Thisted Aikido Klub.
On December 15th we had graduation of Gert (6-th kyu) and Kaare (5-th kyu). Congratulations!
On the 2-nd of February we attended a single day friendship training hosted by the Thisted Aikido Klub where teachers from different Nordjylland dojos were teaching.
Then we had our annual Aalborg seminar with Shihan Ulf Evenås. As always it was a great seminar! At the seminar Kenneth Schultz Gjerulff from Aalborg Aikido Dojo received the 5-th dan certificate. Congratulations!
Our webpage was moved from one hosting provider to another. We had hiccup here so unfortunately our page was not available for some days.
And many more things did happen! Now we are looking forward to get over with Corona virus so we could resume training in our dojo!
50 years in Takemusu Aikido (1969-2019) will be celebrated at the International Shochu-Geiko this July, 1st–6th, 2019, in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Shihan Ulf Evenås, 7 dan Aikikai, and the assistant teacher Dan Borg Sensei, 6 dan Aikikai will conduct the trainings at this seminar, that is organized by the Gothenburg Aikido Club.
Ulf Sensei will teach Traditional Aikido – taijutsu, ken and jo – as he learned it directly from Morihiro Saito Shihan, as a close student during 29 years. He will teach bukiwaza basics, advanced and variations, with focus on the relation with taijutsu (riai) and basic taijutsu, variations, ki no nagare and kokyunage. There will be four classes a day.
The training venue is Frolunda Judo Club, with 360 square meters of tatami, and possibilities for outdoor practice of ken and jo. The dojo is close to one of the best beaches in the Gothenburg area and there is excellent public transportation to the central part of the city.
Registration is to be made until the 28th of June at firstname.lastname@example.org or +46 705 255569.
We were a bit silent for some time here on our homepage. One of the reasons is that now we are more active on our Facebook homepage. The second reason was that our homepage required an update so it again could show our timeline. So today our page got a design update and now again we can post some of the updates on our page.
But as always you can follow us on Facebook. On our homepage (on the right side) we also include a copy of our Facebook activities.
Here is a very short summary of new things in the club.
First of all in August 2018 we have moved to a new location at Filstedvej 10b, 9000 Aalborg, also known as “Omnihuset”. This is a very nice place with good facilities, a place where we can have our mats installed permanently and a big hall that is very good for training with weapons. It should be a perfect place to host our Aikido events.
Then we had some graduations: Werner, Dominyka, Kaare – 6th kyu, Tomas and Dan – 4th kyu, John – 3rd kyu.
Then we had our annual seminar with Shihan Ulf Evenås. The event took place at the same Judo dojo where Shihan came to his very first seminar in Aalborg 25 years ago!
Then we had one more graduation where Jesper Kaagaard got his 4. Dan, and Jesper Thomsen got his 1. dan.
Aalborg Aikido Klub og Aikido Dojo Aalborg inviterer til trænings seminar med Fredrik Snell Sensei fra Karlstad Aikidoklubb.
