Several of the club’s members attended this year’s Annual Leaders Seminar in Cyprus. We spent six days training hard, but also relaxing well and eating a lot.
Mornings in the dojo gave us the opportunity to work on some of the more difficult principles and techniques. We were ably instructed in this by Mizuno Sensei and Imai Sensei, both of whom regularly astound us with the depth of their knowledge and ability.
After a long lunch (it’s too hot to train at lunch time of course), we spent our afternoons on the beach. With shakujo you need a lot of space!
Of course, there was plenty of time for swimming and socialising, building our better world one friendship at a time.
