Re: Seminars

I've enjoyed attending the AKI Gasshuku I've been permitted to join...I also got the impression that these are typically "in house" affairs in that outsiders seem to rarely participate.

At the Doshinkan, Gasshuku refers more to an intensive seminar over a 20 week period or so. If you are going to miss a class, you notify Sensei in writing...basically, you don't miss. A great effort is made to create a certain serious atmosphere, from cleaning the dojo as a class before training, to the nature of the participation, along with homework.
