Lisa Tomoleoni sensei in the UK

Lisa Tomoleoni sensei returns to Chishin Dojo in the UK once again to lead another 3-day seminar. Lisa sensei spent close to 14 years teaching and training in Japan and is the only female leader of a Hombu Dojo / Aikikai group.

Lisa sensei's Aikido is wonderful, powerful and direct, her knowledge and teaching skills are in a class of her own due to her extensive knowledge of both Japanese culture and Aikido technique. You will very likely be challenged to step outside of your comfort zone in order to grow over the 3 days.

Do not miss out!

Taiko Drumming / Kagami Biraki Celebration

Taiko Drumming / Kagami Biraki Celebration

Come break mochi with us and celebrate by making a LOT of noise! This is the third visit from James Barrow of Taiko West to our dojo to lead a Taiko Drumming workshop. James is the only Taiko teacher in the UK to have been awarded Menkyo Kaiden (license of total transmission) from a Japanese teacher.

We will have some sessions for the younger kids and families and then afterwards it's the adults turn (any kids not worn out can join in too).

In Japan, mochi was traditionally made at home, but most families today buy it ready-made. Over the holidays, a pair of round mochi (kagami mochi) the size of small plates -- one a little larger than the other -- is stacked on a stand and placed in a household Shinto or Buddhist altar or tokonoma as an offering to the deities that visit on New Year's. 

If you've never eaten Mochi - it's delicious! There'll also be Pulled Pork and a vegetarian offering too.

Kids - £10, Adults £20, Family Tickets £40.

Shinkendo - Byron Shepherd

Please join us for a seminar looking at Shinkendo and other related arts.

The Shinkendo school emphasizes very traditional and effective swordsmanship, which with serious training, leads to both practical ability as well as an understanding of classical martial arts. Shinkendo is steeped in the traditions of the samurai, in such ways as Heiho (strategy), Reiho (proper Bushido etiquette) and philosophy. Toshishiro Obata Kaiso is the founder, director and chief instructor of The Kokusai Shinkendo Renmei (International Shinkendo Federation), an organization dedicated to teaching authentic Japanese swordsmanship.

Byron Shepherd is the only direct student of Toshishiro Obata Kaiso in the UK, and travels frequently to train with him in the honbu dojo. As a direct student of Obata Kaiso, Shepherd Sensei has had the distinct privilege of learning Aikibujutsu, Shinkendo and Bojutsu Tanrendo directly from the founder of the arts.

Cost is £15 in advance, £20 on the day. Snacks and refreshments included.
