Kukishin Ryu Seminar, Saturday April 28th

April 22, 2007


Budo Taijutsu seminar

focusing on the first level of
Kukishin Ryu Dakentaijutsu & yoroi kumiuchi (armoured grappling)
Teacher: Alex Meehan, Bujinkan Shidoshi & dojo-cho
Date: Saturday, April 28th, 2007
Place: The Scout Hall, Watery Lane, Clondalkin
Time: 11am to 5pm, registration from 10.30am.
Cost: €40 (including notes & optional Sunday morning training on the 29th)

Further details: This is a ‘back from Japan’ training event, following my 10th trip to Japan in March of this year. The plan is to cover the shoden level of Kukishin Ryu Dakentaijutsu over the course of the day, bringing together as much as I can remember from this recent trip. We should have several suits of armour on hand, so if all goes according to plan, we should be able to get the whole level done both with and without armour and looking at exploring some of the principles these kata teach with weapons and in a modern context.

I hope also that other senior shidoshi who have been in Japan this year may throw their ideas in the mix as well. (As usual, instructors of judan rank and above may attend this training for free.) There will also be an additional class on Sunday April 29th at my dojo in Rathmines from around 12 to 2pm or 3pm, to facilitate some extra training for some seminar attendents travelling long distances to attend this course.

This training is open to all current members of the Bujinkan Dojo, regardless of dojo affiliation.
