Dear all,
Because of a terrible event we have to inform you that the seminars scheduled for April 2010 in the Netherlands and may 2010 in Italy are cancelled. See the cancellation notice below from the Daito Ryu website.

In Italy we have arranged an alternative seminar that will be given by Robert Breedveld sensei. Robert Breedveld is the representative of Kondo sensei in Europe and head of the only European Daito Ryu mainline branch dojo.

This seminar will be held on May the 1st and the 2nd in Italy, Modena (app. two hours from Milan and 30 minutes from Bologna) The seminar on the 1st is open for all participants. The seminar on the 2nd is only open for participants that are member of a branch dojo or study group from the Daito Ryu mainline.

On Friday evening, the 5th of March, my eldest son suffered a cerebral infarction. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance, where he remains in a critical condition. The current prognosis at this stage remains unknown. Owing to the seriousness of his condition, it is with regret that I must cancel all scheduled travel overseas.
Therefore, please be advised that all overseas seminars are now cancelled for the time being. I apologize for any inconvenience caused, and thank you in advance for your understanding.
Kondo Katsuyuki
