Instructor Seminar 2014

Shihan Ebbe Kristensen from Odense, Denmark, led this year’s instructor seminar of the Federation Geido Tao Chi Kihon at the Hombo Dojo in Hechtel, Belgium. His topic was EBO-NO-KATA and NE-WAZA-Kata, how to use the katas and the meaning of them, and how we could implement them and the flower model in Chi Ryu Aiki-Jitsu.

The seminar started on Thursday May 29th 2014 with an introduction about the people who created the katas, Mario Den Edel and Wim Boesman. With both Katas being self-defense katas, the ebo-no-kata consists of standing attacks (in total 20, of which 3 are performed with a knife and 2 with a hanbo.) and the Ne-waza-kata is performed on the ground by either being pushed or kicked down or being strangled. After Shihan Ebbe’s one hour short talk we had a warm up with JJIF-fighting. We then moved on with the first technique from the Ebo-no-kata. During the training on Thursday we got through the first ten Techniques from the kata and had the opportunity to study them thoroughly.
