Jan Nevelius Shihan, 7th Dan Aikikai, is based at Vanadis Aikido Dojo in Stockholm, Sweden and has practiced Aikido for 45 years. His main teachers are Endo Shihan and Tissier Shihan. He has also trained with, and has been strongly influenced by, Osawa Shihan and Hermansson Shihan. Nevelius Sensei emphasizes connection, soft ukemi, and an approach to Aikido as never-ending research.

Jorma Lyly Sensei, 6th Dan Aikikai, began practicing in 1986 at Mihashira Aikido Dojo under Lennart Linder and Claes Wikner Senseis.  He has always sought the essence of Aiki and has even gone to one of Aikido’s source – Daito-ryu Aikijujitsu Roppokai – to find it.  Jorma Sensei’s unique and creative approach and deep commitment to ever-more nuanced, soft, and connected practice has earned him the title among his students of the ‘Aiki Wizard.’

Class Description: 

In this class Jan and Jorma Senseis will dialog about Aikido movements and about their research into deeper connection through Aiki, sharing a philosophical and practical conversation about Aikido practice, techniques, and principles.
