Günther Stéger 2007 Photos

Last weekend we a had a wonderful seminar with Günther Stéger sensei. Günther is a relaxed, happy teacher with fluent, yet dynamic movements. He was really kind as he literally went to every pair practicing and did ukemi for everyone to show how each exercise should be done. The main message for the weekend was about the importance of fluent movements, the kuzushi, and seeking and taking opportunities instead of forcing a predefined concept.

We had a lot of fun on and even off the mat. On Friday we went for bowling, and on Saturday we have visited the well known Széchenyi batch. We also did some billiard in Saturday evening.

I really hope that the forecoming Pietro seminar will be as exciting as this was, and also that we can see Günther sensei in the near future again.

We became a real blog

Actually this page was working like a blog before, but editing it was not that simple as it is now.

From now on the content is generated by a blog engine so we get all the advantages of RSS feeds, archives and other fun stuff. This also means I encourage you to create posts as well, so this won't be my announcement board only. If you are interested, just let me know.
