Current week is 27
4 Jul. 2022 – 10 Jul. 2022.
This week's theme is KiAi or focussed ki (気合).
It is a Japanese concept of putting all the movement together in one concentrated moment. Often in some martial arts KiAi is executed with a shout. However it is a misconception that KiAi should always be made with a shout. KiAi is more a state of concentration than a physical effort. KiAi doesn't just make sense in the martial context it also can apply to anything you do. Applying KiAi may make your driving more safe, a conversation more engaged and your work a better quality. It may even improve your cooking skills! Apply KiAi for better concentration and connectedness to be fully engaged in what you do and you will be more successful at it. The calligraphy artist, one who practices the art of shodo, applies KiAi to make beautiful calligraphy and one can observe the way the brush moves smoothly without hesitation or intermittent stopping. It is much like the way Aikido movement is to be applied, as one stroke of the brush dances masterfully in a natural flow over the paper.

Certified Facilitator: Lawrence Warry of Shinyu Body & Mind
The Samurai Game® is a facilitated workshop which can be produced in a business or public environment created and copyrighted by George Leonard in 1977. The workshop brings a group of people together in a new world (the world of the ancient feuding samurai) wherein the group divides into two armies and does battle until one army is clearly defeated. At that point, there are some dramatic decisions to be made by the leaders of the armies! Battles of the Samurai Game® are non-violent and and involve challenges in balance, skill and sometimes aesthetic prowess. When the war is over, participants step back in to the 21st century and evaluate their realizations and an opportunity for sharing/feedback about their realizations is provided.
