Kangeiko 2023 – Bring in on! 30. January - 03. February 2023

Kangeiko – Tradition returns.

Finally, after a forced break of three years, in 2023 there will be Kangeiko in the dojo again. As in the many years before, there is Za Zen and Aikido. And not to forget the famous Japanese breakfast afterward.

Kangeiko – cold training – is a tradition in most Japanese martial arts. It is here that determination and dedication to the path are to be demonstrated.

A long long time ago February was the coldest month in Berlin. That hasn’t been the case for many years, but getting up early is a challenge in itself.

As always, the goal is to hold out as a group all five days. So please come right from the start and do it!

6:00 am Za Zen or jogging in the park

facing the unknown 11. - 12. March 2023

Encounter the sword

In many cultures, the sword is still a symbol of sincerity, clarity, and decisive power. Its meaning goes far beyond a defensive or an offensive weapon. In the way of the sword, it is used as a tool to sharpen the mind and to come to a deeper understanding of oneself in this confrontation.

Experience the sword

In the awareness that in life we are always confronted with the uncertainty of the next moment, the encounter with the sword is about trust in and in what is happening. During the last recent years, also we in Europe have directly experienced that our living conditions can change radically in a very short time. This insecurity, the feeling of being at the mercy, means a high level of stress for all of us.

Despite more than 30 years of practice in martial arts, I am always amazed at how the sword reflects on which state I am in the moment I pick it up. Am I fine, am I stressed, am I tired or in a good mood, …. everything becomes immediately noticeable when dealing with the Bokken.

Handling the sword

This weekend we invite you to experience this for yourself in individual and partner exercises with the traditional Japanese wooden sword (bokken). In working with the sword we practice facing the unknown and develop the ability to stay centered, NO MATTER WHAT.

Previous knowledge is not required for participation, only your interest and your openness to get involved in a deeper self-awareness process.
