Back fresh from my week in the USA, which included the three day Daito-Ryu Ginjukai Honbu Weekend (among other things) on Long Island, New York.
I had a fantastic time, and learned so much. It is great to train and benefit from the experience of so many other Ginjukai members. I have much to work on going forward.
I would like to thank everyone who made my trip so enjoyable and memorable. I very much look forward to seeing you all again.
