    What Is Tenshin Aikido?

    Tenshinaikidoka, thanks for your reply. I agree in part with your statements. However, the web is full of lies and mis-truths. I could claim that I am his student (although I'm not, but I'd like to be), and claim that as a truth, because I say it is, and it says so on my website, and I have...

    What Is Tenshin Aikido?

    With respect to those who have posted, and to the Sensei that are involved, these statements/arguments appear to be the same that used to be on the "Official" SS site years ago. Rather than use this forum for establishing who is actually a student of Seagal Shihan, and who is ripping who off...

    jkd and aikido

    Hello Shadowman, IMHO, if your looking for self-control, you should already have that from your training over the last 9yrs. In those years you should have learned to follow instruction, listen when told, bit your tongue when you have felt like saying something inappropriate for the training...

    To Strike First, Or Wait To Be Striked: The Mere Meaning Of Self-Defense.

    Did the unthinkable (my Aikido journey)

    We're all deficient in one form or another. I can only imagine what these two had been like when they started training. They must have come very far from their beginnings. They were passed for a reason, and that is up to the Sensei. As it was put in another thread "aikido is not for correcting...

    To Strike First, Or Wait To Be Striked: The Mere Meaning Of Self-Defense.

    If a person has made an intention to cause you harm, that is they have verbalised a threat, displayed a threat through body language or what they may be carrying, and you percieve that as a physical threat.......then you would have grounds to use reasonable force to defend yourself. Self...

    Did the unthinkable (my Aikido journey)

    Congratulations on passing your grading!! now relax and spend a little more time on your weapons, if you have good technique there, use it. Also, if you focus more on what you find difficult, not only will you get better, but the things you have found 'easier'/have good ability in, will get...
