On the slopes of the legendary mountain Lipac, this weekend the seminar that we organize every year in honor of our teacher for Daito ryu Aikibudo, shihan Antonino Cherta, was held.
On this event 12 members of the School for martial arts Taiyou e no Michi participated, who restlessly practiced the techniques of the Japanese traditional martial school Ono ha Itto ryu (Takeda den) during the two days.
On Saturday, six hours, and on Sunday in total of five hours were trained. If you add the climbing on the mountain during the two days, then you can freely say that we maintain our combat readiness and condition successfully.
Unlike the previous years, when we slept under the open sky, this year we were situated in the quarters of the beautiful monastery „St. George“.
Apart from the hard training and the enjoyment in the beautiful and untouched nature of Lipac, inevitable were the beans in kettle which are always prepared for the Saturday’s dinner.
After the seminar finished, the host of the monastery offered every year to open the quarters to us for sleepover, and that offer we gladly accepted with a goal to attract the younger members who are not yet accustomed to sleep under the open sky to attend this event.
In the end, all of the participants immediately announced their attendance the next year, which only speaks for the quality training and the beauty of this simple martial school which allures with its simplicity and efficiency.
