Kass, a regular student of our Katori Shinto Ryu class drew this sketch from a photo taken at Budo Spring. Our Dojo is a few miles outside of Thomastown in a hall belonging to Camphill Community Jerpoint. A beautiful countryside surrounds us including an Apple Orchard and vegetable garden. A perfect atmosphere for training and also to encourage this kind of spontaneous creativity.

Budo Spring

Just home from Budo Spring in Ferrara, Italy. Budo Spring is an annual Course of the Koryu Budo Seifukai usually held in Verona, this year a change of scenery. Sensei Luigi Carniel taught most of the classes with the main focus being on Koryu arts. Me and the two students that came along focused our attention on Katori Shinto Ryu using the opportunity to practice with many students of different dojo. We also trained in Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu, Wado Ryu Karate, Moto Ha Yoshin Ryu Jujutsu and Gyokushin Ryu Jujutsu.
