Canberra and Regional Events


1. Maruyama Sensei will return to Hobart in October for the annual seminar. Its a little earlier than usual, the reason being that Sensei will celebrate his 80th birthday and the 20th anniversary of Yuishinkai during the seminar. It was very successful last year, Sensei being very pleased with the improvements he saw. International students and instructors will be invited to the seminar due to its special nature. Dates to be advised but somewhere around the first week in October.

2.The Chief Instructor will run a Development Workshop for Canberra, Wagga Wagga, Sydney and Melbourne in Wagga Wagga in April/May, after he returns from training with Sensei in Japan. The CI will also accompany Sensei to a seminar in Italy in July and will run a seminar and “download” in Brisbane in August. Dates for both events to be advised.

Kenjutsu – The next Shinto Muso Ryu seminar with Dangerfield Sensei is in discussion and dates will be advised.
