introductory courses

Try something new

Introductory courses are made up of ten classes where, at a reasonable pace, you’ll become familiar with the activity in question. Once the course is finished, you can follow two trial classes to get a feel of the real thing. Would you like to keep going to classes, register yourself as a member and you’ll be free to attend classes at any time of the week. Those that already participate in a different activity don’t have to pay separate fees. Instead, they have the option to pay a special fee for 2 (or 3) activities.

Activities

What to do and practice at KenKon

Karate (Goju Ryu)

Goju-ryu is a traditional style of karate where both effectiveness in situations of self-defence, as well as a positive contribution to physical and spiritual development play an important role.

Tibetan meditation

Tibetan meditation is simply about spiritual exercise that leads to increased inner peace, concentration, clarity, compassion, consciousness and freedom.

Qigong

Qigong (pronounced: chi-kung) or ‘Chinese yoga’ is a Chinese system of health exercises that was created thousands of years ago. Literally, qigong means something like ‘exercising life force’.

Zen Meditation

Sitting still, calming your mind, and becoming aware of your surroundings again.

Embodyment

Embodyment is a programme revolved around exploring, valorising and applying the wisdom of our bodies.

Hojo Undo

“Hojo Undo” or “support training” is the traditional strength training of Goju-Ryu. Tools are used in such a way that they provide maximal support for the body in order to practice karate.

Open Conversation Week

Once or twice a year, Sydney Leijenhorst holds an ‘open conversation week’. Everybody, member or non-member, is free to come by KenKon for ‘a good conversation’ of maximum one hour, in exchange for a free donation in the donation box. You are free to send your neighbour, grandmother, or enemy, and it can be about anything you want.

Winter Silent Retreat

In een wereld die steeds chaotischer en meer dualistisch lijkt te worden leert de stilte ons dat alles één is. Wanneer buiten de natuur zich overgeeft aan het ontbindingsproces en opgaan in de aarde, komen we op KenKon om dit proces samen in stilte te delen.

Reading Group Tibetan Buddhism

March 2016 saw the start of the reading group on Tibetan Buddhism, a group of people who want to explore books about Tibetan Buddhism and exchange ideas and thoughts about it with each other.

Aikido

Aikido (合気道 aikidō), literally “the way of coming together with Ki” is a Japanese martial art with a strong philosophical dimension, developed around the start of the 20th century by Morihei Ueshiba.

Dance Improvisation &
Body Release

Since 2013, I have been giving weekly dance and dance-based movement classes at KenKon. Every first class of a cycle is a trial class. If you want to visit on another date, feel free to contact me. See you soon!

Shiatsu

Shiatsu is therapeutic massage technique of Japanese origin. It's an enjoyable, lovely, "body-mind" technique using pressure points and different manual techniques to feed body and spirit, and let energy flow.

Intuitive Yoga

With intuitive yoga we work from intuition. It's about opening up yourself and feeling it, rather than trying to accomplish something.

Taiko Wageningen

In early Japan, Taiko, or “drum of drums”, were used in times of war, or as a means to announce the time in the village.

Back Exercises

A diverse and suitable programme for recovery and prevention of problems. Injury-free group gymnastics, for both men and women.

Guerrilla Sessions!

It is in my nature to follow intuition, hunches and dreams, and this summer there was a sudden impulse to start realising previously unexpressed freedom and wishes. This will be done in the form of ad hoc organised training sessions, focussed on specific topics and specific audiences.
