Seminar content

The seminar is offered in a friendly, neutral environment, with an emphasis on learning and understanding internal power and aiki as a basis for martial movement in a global sense, while undertaking the difficult task of integrating those skills and concepts into your own martial training.


The seminar review and expand the internal martial arts principles that have their roots in ancient Japan and China, but are so often poorly understood. Dan will outline the training in such a way as to make their relevancy to martial movement immediate, clear and accessible.

The material covered, while benefiting Aikido greatly, will not be "specific" to just the aiki arts like Aikido and Daito ryu, but any grappling or striking art, so teachers from other disciplines are welcome.

Aiki weapons (previous attendees only)

In addition to internals, Dan will teach two days of weapons. This is his take on using japanese, traditional weapons like the bokken, naginata etc, with aiki.

NOTE: The weapons training is for those who have attended previous seminars with Dan only.

More info about the Sangenkai method Dan teaches can be found on Dan's bodywork seminars site.

Looking forward to seeing you at Dan's ninth seminar in Oslo!
