        Attention! At this point please The Dojo provides you Kuubukan weapons (sword and staff) for the seminar.


 Objectives for the Seminar:


    Coinciding with the XXXI edition of the Aikido Summer School, a seminar on Kashima Shin Ryu will be held.

    It will begin with a 1st level, which we will continue in successive seminars.



   As it is a basic level and you start from scratch, you do not need to have prior knowledge of weapons. If you have them, they can help better.

   All attendees of the seminar COMMIT to writing a comment about their experience (half a page) to publish it in our Kuubukan News section. You have 1 week after the course to do it and send it to the Dojo email.

   If you come with a real interest in Kashima and you aspire to continue training after this 1st level and want to take the 2nd level, you must COMMIT to carry out a PERSONAL PRACTICE, (alone, unless you come accompanied to the course), of 15 min. a week of the different elements carried out in the seminar.

   If you come with the predisposition of wanting to improve your Aikido, please! Try hard and relate contents and write them down in your field notebook during breaks.

   If you only come out of curiosity without further significance, thank you very much for your financial contribution and we hope you feel comfortable.

    If fluency with weapons content (AR) is slow, - everything will depend on the evolution of the students -, we will take time with the empty hand (MV), because all the priority of the course is focused on the Kashima.

    Be careful with the Ura of the matter at hand, because the Kashima seems simple, but it is VERY DEMANDING, both from a physical and mental point of view, be warned!



Technical Bases

    Know how to put on the Hakama (if one is worn) to be able to practice the Kashima.

    The greeting, for both female students and male students. There are some nuances that you have to know.

    Hold the saber correctly.

    The Kamae, in particular, the arrangement of the feet and the distribution of weight on the legs.

    With Kamae, you will do a little Chi-Kung holding the posture to distinguish the different aspects that make it up: foot placement, knee flexion, weight placement, intension work, etc.

    The mental attitude, both from the point of view of the Tori and the Uke. The two aspects will be seen separately, taking into account the breathing, the gaze, the harmony of the movement between Tori and Uke, etc.

    Basic exercise for awareness of: the supports, the opening of the step, the weight on the legs, the hips, the looseness of the arms, the opening and closing of the chest. This practice is based on an Iaido exercise from Kashima Shin Ryu.

    Exercise to learn to walk, both forward and backward. Taking into account the different supports with the feet.

    Exercise to learn to walk, both forward and backward, maintaining the correct height of the posture at all times and feeling the 8 points of support of the feet against the tatami. That is, without the closed effect of going up and down, along with working on body lightness when moving.

    Balancing exercise with movement forward and backward.

    These last two exercises are key to raising awareness of the CENTER along with body unification, to later be able to develop the Kihon Tachi and in future seminars, Uradachi...

    Shiho Giri with Kesa Giri, with the aim of positioning the Kamae well, knowing how to pass the sword from one side to the other, starting with the Kesa Giri cut and becoming aware of the surrounding space.

    Corridor exercise cutting with Kesa Giri, both forward and backward with good positioning of the Kamae in a normal way.

    Good rooting and stability are sought, both in posture and in cut.

    Corridor exercise cutting with Kesa Giri front and back with a reverse positioning with the Kamae.

    The aim is to achieve the correct orientation of the cut, the rotation of the supports while maintaining the correct body axis, and awareness of the hips and waist.

    All these exercises are done with wooden Ken, if you have the Kashima one it would be ideal.

     Each block of exercises is worked on for between 5 and 10 minutes.

    If you have Fukuro Shinai it is advisable to bring; What is important to bring is normal Shinai.


 Aikido, Weapons, Kashima.

    The work on Saturday on Kashima will be planned as follows.

    As it could not be otherwise and after the preparatory exercises that have been done previously, it is to begin with the Kihon Tachi:

     Kesa Giri.

     Ashi Barai Ukibune.

     Kiri Wari.

     Wari Zuki.

     Kurai Tachi.


    The approach to develop is the following:

    Firstly, each of the contents will be explained separately, -once the role of Tori and then the role of Uke-, emphasizing key technical aspects. Here it is important that you ask all the questions that arise!

    This is done with the intention that there is the greatest possible understanding and assimilation of each technical element.

    Secondly, each element will be practiced separately and individually by each student.

    Thirdly, each of the parts of Kihon Tachi is worked in pairs, one in the role of Tori and another in the role of Uke, then the roles are reversed.

    THERE WILL BE NO CONTACT, it is a practice over long distances to specify each of the technical aspects with the partner in front of you performing their role.


Work on Sunday on Kashima.

    The first thing that will be done is a brief review of the bases that were given on Saturday.

    The second thing is that certain phases of the content will be isolated to do them separately due to the complexity they imply. For example, in Ashi Barai Ukibune the entry and cutting of Gedan by the Tori to control the Uke's saber.

    Another case may be in Kiri Wari, which must be entered on the axis - cut of the Uke. So with each of the elements.

    This will be done in STATIC! In this way the student will become familiar with the contact of the sabers. We will do it with Shinai.

    Thirdly, CONTACT will be worked on, first with Shinai and later with Bokken (which is how Kihon Tachi is made).

    Why is it done that way?

    Because at first practicing each of the 5 contents with wooden Bokken can be dangerous for those who are starting out for the first time, so it is best to always prioritize safety first and foremost.

    Fourthly, and if all goes well, the entire Kihon Tachi will be done in one go with Bokken, both from the role of Tori and Uke.



 Objective for Empty Hand, applying the Kashima.

    In the MV (empty hand) Aikido techniques will be practiced but with Kashima Shin Ryu principles.

    In the following video you have an example of the Kesha Giri cut and its application with the Ikkyo technique.



    If there is time, which I don't care, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. the work will be done empty-handed.


There will be 2 groups

   The 1st is for those who can accept advanced Ukemis, that is, knowing how to fly in the techniques of: Kashinage, Iriminage, Jujigarami, Shihonage and Tenchinage.

   The 2nd is for students with little experience and who only support basic Ukemis, that is, who do not know how to fly.

   WE ALREADY WARNED! That by working at this level with the empty hand (with basic Ukemis), it will reduce the application of the Kashima principles applied to Aikido.



    The technical repertoire will be:

    Katatedori Gyaku hanmi, Shihonage.

    Menuchi o Shomenuchi (depending on the level), Ikkyo.

    Menuchi o Shomenuchi, Iriminage.

    Ryotemochi ryotedori, Tenchinage.


     Each technique will be explained in 5 minutes and practiced in 15 minutes.

    At the end of each day's practice, there will be an exercise session (5 min) aimed at decongesting and recovering the body, especially the legs and back.



 Important Note!



    Do you want to improve your performance in the seminar?

     To make the Kashima Seminar profitable, the last week of May, registered participants will receive a PDF with precise instructions to carry out in the month of June.

    By studying the information and practicing certain exercises, you will be able to take more and better advantage of the teaching transmitted in the seminar.

    At the end of the course, participants will also receive a second PDF with recommendations for practice. In this way, the 2nd level will be able to be faced with more solvency and with more integration of the contents taught in the 1st edition.
