Ed is touring around Europe at the moment.
I am hosting him at the end of May in the UK for a weekend seminar.

Hello Joshua,

As has probably already explained to you, there are at least 3 versions (if not more) of Ichimonji, not including Henka. These would be the Gyoko Ryu, Koto Ryu & Togakure Ryu. As Papa San has already mentioned, dont get to hung up on them, in tell you will come to understand that they are just 'moments in time' that we move through.

As to Nagase Sesnei, I'm afraid I can't really tell you much about him, as he is still sort of one of the 'newer' Shihan to me. I have seen him on many occasions at the Hombu and DKMS over the years and he is very good.

Just in case anyone is wondering why I say 'newer', please dont think it is out of disrespect. I have been training on and off for 27 years now (thats scary how quickly that has passed) and been to Japan numerous times, but did have an extended break a few years back and as such there are many new Shihan at training since I got back into it, so am still trying to get to know them all :)

Anyway, good luck with your training and perhaps we might meet in Japan some time.

Dave.

Hi Will,

There is lots of good advice here form the guys.

I'm afraid at the moment it will just be a case of "practice, paractice & practice more". As one of my students often says "it's like pelling an infinte onion!"

Regards,

Dave.

Hi Josh & Matt,

Welcome to the Bujinkan family.

Enjoy your training. Don't worry if you have problems, we all go through phases of not being able to it.

Hopefully might meet you guys at a seminar some time.

Dave.

My first class was with Peter King (who is still my teacher) way back in late 1987. Doron was at the club that night, i think he had done a course at the weekend. Peter suggested I come a watch for a couple of weeks and I started after that.

I cant remember what we done on my first proper class, but training was a lot harder physically back then, lots of bruises

The first time I saw Soke was at the first UK Tai Kai that Peter organised and we all helped out at. Soke just blew me out of the water, as he still continues to do to this day.

My first trip was to Japan in 1990, for the DKMS that was held at Ishizuka Sensei's dojo in Kashiwa. Anyone remember that one?

I started teaching at my own club in 2006, cant remember what I done, but must have been Kihon based. Like most other people, I teach in order to better understand what we are learning, but I'm still happy to admit I'm often scratching my head and have more questions than answers

Agree with Papa-San, enjoy the training, sup a few beers and make the most of it, there may not be many more.

Hope to see you there.

Hi Marty,

Sorry to hear you suffered an injury, had a friends student dislocate his toe at Seno Sensei's class last year. He had to spend nearly half a week just watching the classes, so I know how frustrated you must have felt.

I second John's comments re Peter King. I train with him each week, so if you want to contact him for advice feel free to let me know and i can pass on his contact details.

Dave.

I was at a seminar with Sven last Saturday, and he said that whenever Soke asked Takamatsu questions he got beaten up. When he stopped asking questions and just got on with training he stopped getting beaten up!

For me, I'm just happy to see Soke in action and listen to whatever he has to say in class and try to understand when I'm japan.
