Aikido video of William Gleason Sensei, Aikido 7th Dan, the Chief Instructor of Shobu Aikido of Boston. He has been a guest instructor at Aikido Eastside for 18 years. For every one of those 18 years, Gleason Sensei has managed to get better, not just in his own technical mastery, but in his ability to articulate the principles of the art in a way that places him among the top teachers in the world in our opinion.
“This was quite simply one of the best Aikido seminars I have ever attended in 40 years of training” – George Ledyard, Aikido 7th Dan
This was the second of two seminars he did at Aikido Eastside in 2017. It contains over 3.5 hours of instruction covering four classes. Gleason Sensei predominantly focused on body centered instruction on how to develop a unified structure and the use of the intent to create “aiki”. He also covered some aiki sword, demonstrating several kumi-iai, or paired drawing forms.
