Posted 3/30/2006 3:09pm [from Lia Suzuki]

Takeda Shihan's 8th Dan Celebration - On March 21, 2006, a celebration was held in Kamakura, Japan to honor the promotion of Takeda Yoshinobu Shihan to 8th dan. Festivities began with keiko at Hachiman Shrine in Kamakura in the morning. After keiko, a special embukai (demonstration) was held. After keiko and thhe embukai, people had time to freshen up for a party at the Park Hotel, overlooking the ocean. Representatives from AKI Australia dojos included Stephen Seymour (AKI Sydney), Chiko Xerri, and Berin Mackenzie (AKI Bondi Beach). Jean-Rene Leduc represented AKI Canada Dojos and Lia Suzuki represented AKI USA Dojos. Speeches were made by some of these dojo-cho and also some of Takeda Shihan's senior students, including Seino Sensei and Numata Sensei. Congratulations again Sensei and thank you for all your support and inspiration over the years.
