A few of our black belt students went recently to Cyprus for the annual Leader’s Seminar.
For six days we trained.
In the mornings we were in the dojo, with instruction from Mizuno Sensei, the chief instructor of the BSKF, and two guest instructors from Japan.
In the afternoons, this was our dojo:
It wasn’t all about the training, though. We also ate a lot of really good food, and spent time with kenshi from other parts of the UK, as well as from Spain, Switzerland, and other countries in the IKA.
The leader’s seminar was an excellent experience, and I highly recommend attaining black belt purely so that you are eligible to go (although of course there are also other benefits to improving at a martial art!).
Oh, and there were also cats.
