Thanks! You know, I'm not sure who Soke is bringing yet. It is really up to him. Last time Hirata Sensei came, which was very nice. I know Kawakami Sensei and Asai Sensei recently assisted Soke at the last Italy Seminar. Yabuki Sensei is interested in coming, and was originally supposed to come in 2011. There is also another member there I am trying to "influence" to come over. They are all very experienced and skilled exponents, so I'm really pretty happy with whoever they choose, to tell you the truth.

There are even still a few members who began training under Sasamori Junzo Soke, the 16th headmaster, who have continued training under Sasamori Takemi Soke, the 17th headmaster. Two generations of experience to draw from there.

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to it. The group in Japan is a pleasure to train with, and have a lot to offer. I'll post an update about who they are bringing with once I hear of it.

Hope you can make it!

Agreed, he is one of the few instructors that teaches budo through their own example. It is very rare to meet an instructor who is highly skilled, deeply knowledgeable, AND of outstanding character. Sasamori Sensei really is someone that is worth meeting at least once.

One of my buddies was training with him. Really enjoyed meeting him.
