Aiki Budo teacher visits Canada

My name is Matthew Rogers and I'm the Director of the Scarborough Martial Arts Training group < www.spiritforging.com >. I thought that I would alert those interested to a very unique training opportunity.

Okayabashi Shogen, one of the foremost students of Hisa Takuma (of the Osaka based Takumakai Daito Ryu group) and Takeda Tokimune (son of the Founder of Daito-ryu ) is coming on a brief trip to St. Catherines on October 13th to support the new dojo of one of his students, Joe Wilson, who has only recently returned to Ontario from several years of training with Okayabashi-sensei in Japan.

Integral to Okayabashi-sensei's approach to jujutsu, aikijujutsu and the Itto Ryu school of swordsmanship is the reinfusion of the traditional Japanese warrior's method of movement called ‘hitoemi' into modern practitioners way of performing technique. In an effort to preserve these concepts which he felt were being neglected Okayabashi-sensei founded the Hakuho Ryu Aiki Budo group.

Although Okayabashi will not be conducting a formal seminar in Toronto due to the newness of Mr. Wilson's dojo I think this informal training session would be of great interest to those interested in roots of modern aikido and the approach of the traditional Japanese warrior to performing jujutsu, aikijujutsu and sword techniques.

Those interested in participating in training with Okayabashi-sensei may contact Joe Wilson c/o my e-mail address:
