On Saturday the first of October BBRD Jodo practitioners participated in a cross-training session with Glen Henry Sensei and his students from Chushinkan Dojo of Brisbane. We trained at Queens Park in Ipswich. There were four members from BBRD and five members from Chushinkan Dojo working on their techniques in jo kihon and Omote kata after a warm up with the bokken.
I hope I speak for everyone in that we pushed our skills to the limit, and gained valuable insights and experience with our techniques. Overall an enjoyable and educational time was had by all.
This is planned to be a regular event with the next one tentatively scheduled in six weeks time (12 November).
Jodo training continues as scheduled on Mondays and Wednesdays at 7:00 pm (19:00 hrs) at the MEAC. See everyone there.
