Searching an Makoto Aikido Trainingpartner
Posted November 29th, 2010 - 10:56 am by from Berlin, Germany (Permalink)
Hello there,

I'll move to Berlin next weekend and have to leave my Makoto Aikido Teacher behind. Makoto is a very unique Aikido Style and there are only about three Dojos in Germany that train it. It has been founded by Sensei Steven Seagal (Yes, the actor) and continued by Sensei Larry Reynossa. I've been to the last three workshops of Sensei Reynossa and was training with a great student of his.

You can read a bit more about the philosophy behind this Makoto style here http://www.makotoaikido.com/cms/

As I won't have an educated trainer available in Berlin, I'll use Sensei Reynossas online teaching site (A video platform) where I can also ask questions directly to him and he will answers using videos showing what I asked.

So I can train without a teacher being physically present, but I can't train without a partner. I am looking for someone who is willing to embrace this style and its philosophy and willing to train at least two times the week with me.
