MSMAS Annual 'FREE' Gashuku at the MSMAS 'Welsh Training House'...

Once again MSMAS Members took part in our Annual 'free' Spring Gasshuku held once again at the MSMAS Training House in Wales...


The 2009  ‘FREE’ MSMAS Spring Gasshuku is taking place once again in Wales ~ April 24th through to April 27th 2009.

Students and Teachers from The Mid Sussex Martial Arts School travelled to the ‘MSMAS Training House’ set deep in the Welsh countryside, to enjoy their annual 4 day ‘Spring Gasshuku’ or Training Camp.

This year’s event was also an opportunity for MSMAS Aikidoka to attend the 2009 'Mind, Body & Spirit' Aikido Seminar held in Wales, where Kyoshi Payne was invited to be 'Special Guest Instructor' at this Seminar, hosted by the Treorchy Shin-Gi-Tai Dojo and held at the Rhondda Fach Sports Centre in Ferndale.

Other Instructors present were:

• Mike Williams Renshi Shin-Gi-Tai Aikido
• Peter Thomas   Shin-Gi-Tai Aikido
• Mal Saunders   Welsh Aikido Society
• Selwyn Bowen   Shin-Gi-Tai Aikido
• Pietro Parterna   Italian School of MA & ‘G.Masi’ Bologna, Italy.

All the Instructors present were given time to teach and instruct during a most pleasant day, full of good humour and Aikido, with people who obviously enjoyed every moment of the day. Our thanks to Mike and his dedicated Team of helpers.

The rest of our ‘Spring Gasshuku’ included our normal early morning Sessions, starting at 3.30am, plus a chance to enjoy the surroundings whilst on our 10 kms runs!

The final day was spent at the Lampeter Leisure Centre with yet more Aikido focusing this time on Aiki~Ken & Aiki~Jo.

Our usual ‘Spring Gasshuku’ are noted for the rigorous nature of the training. This time, with our day at the 'Mind, Body & Spirit' Aikido Seminar, both our Students and Teachers were able to interact with other Aikidoka.

However, the balance of our time was spent, as usual, outside our ‘comfort zone’, thus extending the focus of this Spring event on our own mind, body and spirits.”

Well done to all present !!
