Aikido In Focus - Workshops with Dave Goldberg Sensei


One-Day Intensives to Support Your Growth

"Aikido In Focus" is a series of concise topical training clinics for accelerating both your Aikido and personal development. We often use video in order to get more objectivity on our own practice.

These workshops are typically held on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. They are a great opportunity to explore one aspect of your Aikido in a supportive, intimate group setting.

Past topics have included:

  • Relax, It's Aikido
  • Putting the Free in Freestyle
  • How am I limiting myself / getting in my own way?
  • Ukemi
  • Aikido, Fear, and Freedom
  • Kumi-Tachi (partner practices with bokken)

No workshops are scheduled at the moment. Please check back!

Dave Goldberg Sensei, 5th Dan

Goldberg Sensei served on academic faculties in the US and Japan for nine years before professionally devoting himself to Aikido full-time. Dave Goldberg Sensei's work in Aikido is inspired by the Founder's vision that Aikido is here to develop us as more harmonious and effective people. He is dedicated to a path in martial arts that is life-affirming, and connects us to the questions of life that we all share.
