In the Skopje dojo of Bujinkan Macedonia, yesterday the instructor Igor Dovezenski held the first seminar for Daito ryu Aikijujutsu for the year 2017.
After the end of the seminar we agreed to have a following during the next month.
The October Intensive Daito ryu seminar attracted a record number of visitors who tirelessly and with great energy trained the kata from the first set (Ikkajo) of this traditional Japanese martial school for two days.
In a fantastic atmosphere with dynamic training and wonderful friendships ended the seventh consecutive seminar titled “Kenjutsu under the stars of Lipac VII”. Immediately after the end, the participants shared their impressions on the Forum of the Organization “Taiyou e no Michi”, so we are presenting a small part of them, instead of a classical Report.
mouth, it was something amazing. And like a good night story, the jokes from the veterans. On the second day we got our backpacks and straight to the top we went, towards the Sun. And there to greet us and to officially open the training first little grey clouds, and soon after icy drops that came as a nice refreshment. Everybody piled up, everybody drenched, but what is important everybody smiling and ready to continue the training. But it continued in a different direction, this time through bushes and forests. It was something incredible. It truly cannot be described. All I can say is a big thank you to Sensei and to everybody who were part of this seminar. I truly love you all, although we all are different characters, nonetheless one thing joins us all together. TAIYOU E NO MICHI! Love!” – Tamara Gjorgievska
“For the seventh time this seminar has been held in honor of the shihan Antonino Certa, our teacher for Daito ryu Aikijujutsu. Every swing with the sword under the heat of the hot sun, every drop of sweat and every spilled drop of blood on Lipac, bring us closer to our goal. To improve ourselves and to become better people. To be individuals who won’t easily quit during the challenges with witch life will relentlessly face us. After the end of the seminar we could have descended fast and easy through one of the two roads that I use every week while wandering through the peaks of Lipac. But, how will I discover the weakness of my students if I take them on the easy way? How will I bring them face to face with their fears, with their insecurities, with their indecisiveness? How will I make good warrior out of them? Don’t expect, while studying under me, that you will go through the shortcut. That road in the end is always lost in the labyrinths of lies and illusions. The long way is hard, but in the end will always face you with the truth. You will be able to lean on your experience built while trying to fight through the hardships facing you. I have past thousands of kilometers and know exactly what I am talking about. It is up to you to open the door and bravely step through it.” – Igor Dovezenski
