I came back yesterday from a fantastic trip and I hope you have been able to share with me the things I trained in Noda.
I have been asked in Japan why I was writing so much*. It is to share with the community some of the knowledge we get in Japan with Sôke and the shihan. I hope it will help you to wait for your next trip.
These texts* and these pictures are my attempt to give a fair image of what is happening in Japan. This is why I have added many pictures to these texts.
I took many pictures and not all are good but please see them as a training documentary. Pictures being forbidden during training, you will mainly have pictures taken before and after the class. As today someone asked me to put a link here to access the pictures uploaded on facebook during my trip you will find them below:
The first album contains the first 10 days (over 500 pict):
and the second one only the last day (around 100 pict):
Enjoy and comment them if you feel like it.
*All the texts in this blog were uploaded in April. If you want to read them again, click on “April 2012” in the home page and they will appear.
