Event: June Ninpo Taijutsu workshop

June 6, 2008

戸 隠 流 八 方 秘 剣

On Saturday June 21st, there will be a one day workshop in Rathmines focusing on this year’s theme of ninpo taijutsu and sword.

This training is aimed at all students at the dojo, with equal emphasise placed on skill acquisition for newer students and consolidation for senior kyu and dan graded students.

We will take the time on this day to cover the Santo tonko no kata found within the Togakure Ryu Ninpo Taijutsu, as well as variations designed to deepen the lessons found in the techniques. In addition, we shall look at the Bikenjutsu of the Togakure Ryu and weather permitting, some outdoor training using rokushakubo, naginata and yari.

This workshop is open to all Bujinkan students, subject to prebooking a place via e-mail or PM here on this board. The workshop will cost €35 and will run from 11am to 5pm/6pm. In particular I’d like to encourage some of the newer members of the dojo to come along and meet the other students who they might not yet have met. While this workshop is aimed at my students, others are welcome to attend as well.

There are 16 places available in total for this workshop and as of today, Thursday June 19th, it’s full. This one will book out fast guys so I’d advise reserving a place sooner rather than later if you think you want to come.

EDIT: Weather permitting, we’ll be training at the Rathmines Dojo in the morning, and outdoors after lunch.

If the weather’s good, we’ll car pool and shift the fun about 10 mins away. If you have them, pack your outdoor tabi for this (and possibly sunscreen?) . . .

Obviously, if it’s lashing it down, we’ll be in Rathmines all day. See you all on Saturday!
