Seminar in Prague

A ten-member delegation from Slovenian Aikikai took part in another seminar by Wilko Vriesman, this time in the renovated Sei Aikido Dojo in Prague.

Once again we ascertained that Wilko Vriesman is a great teacher:
  • clear instructions - easily connects with individuals and the whole group
  • excellent methodologist - able to create forms and exercises for easy, fast progress
  • selfless - his highest reward is his students' advancement
During the training we agreed on the organization of a four-day Aikido summer school in Ljubljana.
