Musubi (moo-soo-bi) is roughly translated from Japanese as "tying the knot". Musubi, therefore, is the tying together of ki (energy) between individuals. Musubi emphasizes establishing strong connections between uke and nage. And Musubi sets the stage for receiving and transforming the technique in a powerful and harmonious manner. Soft high ukemi, reversals and safe falling are natural extensions of this practice.
Charles is the Founder/Director/Chief Instructor at Aikido in the Schools (www.aikidointheschools.com). He trains and teaches in New York City, and travels regularly to train and teach in the United States, Europe, and Latin America.
This seminar will explore, practice, and cultivate connection (musubi) and receptivity (ukemi) in the context of Aikido principles and practices. And, of course, to follow the advice of Morihei Ueshiba, O Sensei to "Always practice the art of peace in a vibrant and joyful manner"
