Intensive Training day 1 – photos by Shinko

Taisha-ryu’s Ryu Sen Kan dojo in Yatsushiro conducts what is called in Japanese 短期集中鍛錬 (pronounced  tanki shuchu tanren) meaning “short intensive training” that runs from 10:00 – 16:00 with a lunch break at mid day for members who live so far from Yatsushiro that they are unable to come to the regular training sessions. Yesterday was the first of ten sessions that  I’m doing this trip. Usually there are a few other students who come when a session is on but yesterday was only Yamamoto-Sensei, Uehara-san, Chihara- san and me. Later in the day, Tsunoda-came to help instruct. Here are some photos taken by Shinko-san.
