Philosophy of Aikido Club Sei Shin
We aim to develop Aikido skills and support all members in their effort. We devote our efforts and financial resources to the development of international cooperation and support of our members in participation in national and international seminars and further implementation. We want to minimize the financial burden on our members, so that none of the management of the club earns from this activity and so each member of the management pays the full membership fees.
History and characteristics of the club
The club was founded on September 1, 1995 and incorporated into the House of Children and Youth in České Budějovice. There are currently about fifty regularly practicing members.
From the beginning, the club was not firmly assigned to any of the Aikido organizations operating, so each member had to decide which organization they would join and where they would perform the exams. At present, our members belong to the Czech Federation of Aikido and Bohemia Aikikai.
The club regularly organizes seminars of both organizations and often invites foreign teachers to provide members with sufficient technical background.
Information about adult trainings can be found here.
Aikido club Sei Shin for girls and boys
The children’s club was established in 1999 with the aim of expanding the membership base and at the same time, to separate children from adults for safety reasons. Children practicing in our country are not organized under any Aikido organization, which eliminates the need to pay additional fees. They are organized only by the “Dům dětí a mládeže České Budějovice” (organization for organize activities for children and youth), which gives us a suitable background and allows to organize summer camps.
The trainings are led by experienced trainers, Michal Šimera and Vladimír Hans. The purpose of the practising is not only to master Aikido techniques, but also to increase the physical condition of children, improve physical coordination and physical exercise.
