June is coming up, and that’s the time for both teachers and students alike to learn from each other at the Kosho Ryu Kempo Curriculum and instructor training program hosted by Sensei Jeff Driscoll in Potsville PA at his dojo. Our headmaster Hanshi Bruce Juchnik will be there and we always look forward to his visits on the east coast. We all learn so much and it’s certainly a humbling experience. Makes me so incredibly thankful to be part of the organization.
Last year we trained for three days with Hanshi, going over what would appear to be basic movements and concepts within the octagon. However timing and distance and other factors are changed from the usual martial thinking. Things then get very challenging both in technique and simple motion. Especially exploring these adjustments with Bunkai in kata and each other’s methods. When I drove home with my fellow budo friends, my brain and body was well spent. Incredible weekend!
The weekend is filled with so many teachers sharing so many concepts and methods of how they have grown with Hanshi and the Kai. The beauty of Kosho Ryu Kempo is that all martial arts can favor from the teachings no matter what you do. We all come from different backgrounds and other arts, but when we get together, all speak the same language but with different stories. It’s true Kempo.
It’s very exciting and I recommend anyone interested in a lifelong study of budo to join us on June 1st 2nd and 3rd. in PA. All are welcome! Teachers from all over the country and even Europe will be in attendance again this year, and I look forward to seeing both new and old friends and bringing back more knowledge to share with my friends here at our dojo.
