Sensei Rob and Jonathan visit Cyprus

Posted by on 2013/10/17

Some of you may have been wondering where Sensei Rob and Jonathan were the past two weeks. Every year the BSKF runs a special training seminar in Cyprus for black belts. At this week long event, the BSKF chief instructor Sensei Mizuno focuses on advanced technical training, as well as giving advice on how to become better teachers. Both Sensei Rob and Jonathan attended, along with several other black belts from City Dojo in London, and many others from other UK and international branches.

Everyone attending had a great time, and learnt a great deal from Mizuno Sensei.

These events are a great opportunity to train with new faces, as well as renew bonds with old friends. Everyone attending had an excellent time, and learnt a great deal from the whole experience. Now Sensei Rob and Jonathan can bring these new insights back and pass them on to all of their students.

We also practiced with some of the wooden weapons of Kempo. The long staff, or shakujo, and the shorter, nyoi.

There is absolutely no reason why anyone currently training at Angel dojo couldn’t one day obtain their black belt, and attend events like this. Keep training hard, have fun, and one day you too could be a future sensei!

We hope you had a good time training with Alice and Guy, and look forward to seeing you all in the dojo soon!

In other news, the format of Sensei Rob’s YMCA children’s classes have slightly changed. There are now two separate classes, Wednesdays, 4:15pm-5pm for children aged 5 to 8, and 5pm-6pm for children aged 8 and over. Please see YMCA Class for more details.
