STUDY GROUP TOMIKI AIKIDO

STUDY GROUP TOMIKI AIKIDO hold regular monthly European sessions open to all black belts throughout the world of Aikido. The sessions are primarily held in Antwerp and under the supervision of Shihan Eddy Wolput.  The aim is to try to understand the teachings of Professor Tomiki, Ohba sensei, Yamada sensei and others who now follow.  By continuous research and focus on basic skills and their applications, we learn proper balance and posture and reduce some of the mystery which surrounds our system.  In this quest to improve, students from Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Holland, Japan, Norway, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, England UK, Scotland UK and Ukraine have attended to date.  As a non-political group we work together promoting the true spirit of Tomiki helping to maintain universal friendship.

FORMATION AND ETHOS
We started the Study Group idea in late 2008, just by coincidence and as a method of Yudansha training. Someone was looking for a partner to do a JAA 6th Dan Grading. After a while, the interest for the grading ebbed away because the content of the syllabus for grading was in some ways conflicting with teachings of Senta Yamada and other early instructors in Europe.
The plan was made to come together on a regular base to study the “original” teaching of Senta Yamada. We discovered a much larger version of Senta Yamada’s movie. We also have a movie and some direct experience with Teruo Fujiwara (an old student of Tomiki). And some of us practised a lot with Dr Lee ah Loi, Takeshi Inoue, Itsuo Haba.
We also have a good relationship with Fumiaka Shishida, Tadayuki Satoh, Yoshiomi Inoue.

To share all this knowledge is the purpose of the Study Group.
