Thanks to Doug Wilson Shihan!

May 26, 2008

Thanks to Doug Wilson Shihan from Japan for an excellent three days training this past weekend. Doug covered material taken from Togakure Ryu Ninpo Taijutsu and the sword, rokushakubo and kyoketsu shoge of Happobikenjutsu over the weekend, with a pervading theme of ‘keeping it real’, ‘ninpo ikkan’ and working towards kieru no kankaku, or the feeling of disappearing.

I know I had a great time and it was a pleasure to welcome visiting budoka (and shihan instructors) from EVERY club in Ireland as well as visitors from the UK (David Oliver, David Webb, Andy Whalley, Chris Caulfield) and Shihan Gillian Booth from Australia.

Thanks are also due to Rex Dunlop for being so incredibly helpful with the organising of this course, as well Quintin Ahern for filming and Jason Coleman, Richard WeldMoore, Mat Harvey and the others from the Rathmines Dojo who also mucked in. Thanks guys!

We recorded enough material to put out a DVD of this seminar, so watch this space for news of when it will be available.

There are loads more pictures on the dojo webforum, for those registered to view it.
