Hello Dan,
will this seminar have any jiu jitsu /grappling specific applications and methods to tie in the internals with?

-Cheers

Sorry, I didn't see this. I don't come here much anymore.
Techniques?
Yes, but only some. I show martial movement and approaches and not necessarily individual techniques. The only difference being when I teach weapons.
And to be clear, what is out there on you tube has NOTHING to do with what I teach, those were from a Daito Ryu focused seminar more to introduce Goldberg Sensei to some of my guys..

Jujutsu/grappling seminars are a dime a dozen so i don't really see the point.
Good internal seminars are not as common.
That said...
Internals do NOT make you a grappler/fighter any more than Martial arts make you a grappler/fighter. Hence why most *martial artists* find out they really are neither *martial* nor *artists* when they meet good grappler/fighters.
But since there are many good grapplers, why bother just adding to the mix? I find it more beneficial to the community to teach internals and aiki and independence of movement rather than fighting skills. For that reason I can have seminars with seniors from Aikido, Daito Ryu, Taiji, Bagau, ILC, BJJ. Judo, MMA, and Koryu...all in one room. Were I to focus on technical aspects I couldn't do that. But, hey...that's just my opinion. It doesn't require agreement from anybody. Its my choice of what to do, that's all.

I noticed. The silence is deafening. ;D

Can I ask about the book Dan? Will it be exclusively aiki/IP type discussion, or any history, other stuff?

Any chance your Aussie chaps will entice you down under soon?

Hi Finny
The book has an overview of the history of internal training throughout the arts and it's presence in Japanese arts. It has training advice, drawings and descriptions.
I'm very hesitant to publish and don't know if I'll ever get the courage or enough interest to actually do so. Most of what I've read or watched is such well written, but none-the-less, useless crap... I'm not sure I can produce a book or videos of what I'd want to read or see much less anyone else.

I'm doing an Aussie seminar in Hawaii in Feb. They got tickets for $500. It's on my calendar. I don't know if or when I'd go. Is a 26 hr flight. I'm booked for 2018 and partially 2019

There's a regular weekend workshop that's open, which is followed by a closed five day intensive workshop just for the Australia Sangenkai group. It's basically a compromise so that Dan doesn't have to make the long trip down to Australia and the Aussies don't have to make the long trip out to Massachusetts. More info here...

Best,

Chris
