A Note From Hanshi:
The 19th Annual Gasshuku was a lot of fun with excellent instruction. We had over one hundred participants from all over the United States. Thank you to all the instructors and students who participated. We learned a lot.
I would also like to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for sharing in my early 60th birthday celebration at the banquet dinner last Saturday. I was very emotional from the touching speeches given by my family, students and friends.
Thank you to Sensei Marius and Sensei Amadou for inviting me to Utah to give my annual seminar. The seminar was full, and everyone improved in their technical skills from last year. (Picture on pg. 3)
