Update from Michael Barr in Japan.............

The dojo was shared with other martial artists at the municipal dojo…and as Michael and Sensei Andre were last out of the dojo the rule is that they get to sweep it up to be ready and clean for the next users .

I have completed the first weekend of training with Sensei Andre Bertel. The sessions were technically demanding and highlighted aspects of the syllabus students will learn during the 2016 England Seminar. 

I am sure there has been very little of this type of teaching seen in Europe. The video is from a private session during Sensei Andre’s last visit to the UK which focussed on relaxation (moving away from the stiff hard karate that eventually wrecks your joints), compression and rotation.
