EVOLUTIONARY AIKIDO 2020



Presidents Weekend, February 14-16, 2020

with PATRICK CASSIDY SENSEI and DAVE GOLDBERG SENSEI

Evolutionary Aikido is a perspective on the art that's rooted in the fact that we all share one system, and are connected by it. Practice is process oriented, and involves not only the improvement of skills, but also an embodied transformation of ourselves. We look into where we are, what is next, and how we make space for this new level of understanding, ability, and awareness to take shape. Evolutionary Aikido is a way to explore this, and express the perspective of integrated unity in our Aikido.

This year Friday and Saturday will be dedicated to an Evolutionary Aikido topic/theme that is yet to be announced. We intend for it to seamlessly lead us into an Aiki Combat Improv exploration on Sunday.

ACI is a unique supplemental practice offered in the Evolutionary Aikido Community. It's an extension of Aikido freestyle (jiyuwaza) where uke is as free as nage to respond. It’s framed in order to synthesize the movements and principles of Aikido with an open context in which both partners can play and create. The goals are to facilitate (1) a greater sense of being and awareness, (2) a more fluid sense of responsiveness, and (3) power that honors the relationship. ACI is not locked down to techniques but free to be in organic relationship with the other. Gis/belts/hakamas are not worn. Dress in gi pants and t-shirt.

Schedule & Registration

FRIDAY ~ 6:30-8:00 Evolutionary Aikido
SATURDAY ~ 10:00-4:00 Evolutionary Aikido (w/lunch break), 4:30 Yon-dan demo, 6:00pm dinner party.
SUNDAY ~ 10:00-2:00 Aiki Combat Improv (w/break)

Evolutionary Aikido seminars are based in process and theme. We therefore ask for a commitment to the weekend. Do your best, please. The investment is only $149 if you early-bird register in 2019. On New Year's Day it goes up to $179. Sorry, but no partial registration options will be offered.
