Re: Dojo in Kyoto

Nomura Shihan is no longer teaching at the budo center, it looks like there are a few instructors, head instructor being a direct student of Tanaka Bansen sensei. There have always been a lot of foreigners at that dojo, so no one will even bat a eye at another. also a lot of people practice there, which can be good for learning to practice with various kinds of people.
I'm a student of Nomura Shihan, and I think he is amazing. he teaches mostly in Nara and a few dojos in Osaka. Other people have recommended great instructors, it's well worth taking a trip to visit different dojos once in a while.
