This year the trainings were held by Michele Quaranta sensei and Jelena Vrzich sensei as representatives of AAS and Mirko Jovandich sensei from AUS. The participants were able to see three different points of view towards aikido and learn many lessons from each of them. Our dojo took part with three participants.

On Sunday, at the dojo of the Seishin aikido dojo from Belgrade, there was an examination for numerous Dan grades in AAS and awarding of the diplomas from the previous examinations. The instructor at our club, Damjan Cingarski, received his diploma for 1st Dan.

On invitation of the Bulgarian aikido association up front with Edward Germanov sensei (5th Dan Aikikai, Quaranta sensei held a weekend seminar in Sofia, Bulgaria on the 18th and the 19th of October. The seminar was announced as the most attractive seminar for this year in Bulgaria, and it lived up to the announcement to its fullest. Around a hundred aikidokas from Bulgaria, Macedonia, Switzerland, Greece, Serbia and USA took place at the seminar.

The starting trainings were held by Germanov sensei, and he presented beautiful aikido through various inventive forms. After him, Quaranta sensei explained the basic principles of the didactic system of Ikeda sensei, and woke up great interest among the participants.

Quaranta sensei has visited Sofia in the past as Ikeda sensei’s assistant, but for the first time now as a teacher.

The second seminar from the series of teacher's seminars for instructors who teach according the didactical system of Masatomi Ikeda shihan 7.Dan Aikikai was held from 30-th of May untill 1-st of June 2008 in the capital of the Czech Republic. The 1-st one was held in November 2007 in Basel. This time everybody was there: Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Netherlands, Macedonia, Germany, Croatia, Ukraine and Switzerland.

Like the first time, Quaranta sensei leaded the seminar this time also. Its subject was the 6-th kyu examination program, i.e. what about it should the teachers know and what should be expected from the students. Also, an explanation was given about why Ikeda sensei made the 6-th kyu, concerning the fact that in Aikikai usually the first kyu is the 5-th.

Everything went in a pleasant atmosphere and the seminar ended successfully.

This was far the most successful seminar we had untill now in our dojo! And of course, we don't intend leaving it there. We hope for the following ones to be even better.

The guests we had from Bulgaria, Serbia, Switzerland and Macedonia were more than satisfied from what they have learned from the master Michele Quaranta. We had most pleasant atmosphere at the seminar full with positive energy.

We had also a very good examination for almost every KYU. Congratulations to those who passed. :)

We are all looking forward to our next meeting with our teacher Michele Quaranta!!
