The past weekend was reserved for the art of Daito ryu Aikijujutsu, where the instructor Igor Dovezenski taught the kata from the first set of the art, known as Ikkajo. The seminar took place in the Hombu Dojo of the Organization „Taiyou e no Michi“, and three students of Daito ryu Macedonia – Koryu Dojo participated.
On Saturday, Dovezenski taught the basic striking techniques, blocks and body movements (Aiki Taiso), and afterwards he carried on with the kata from Idori and Tachi Ai. The next day, after the participants repeated the techniques they learned, he continued transmitting the kata from Hanza Handachi.
As you may already know, instructor Dovezenski holds a weekend-seminar in the Hombu Dojo once every month, where he teaches a small group of students the techniques of this noble and efficient samurai school in great detail, that was a true non-material treasure of the mighty Japanese clan Takeda.
