On Saturday the 20th of February we had a joint training day for those who are sandan (3rd dan) or above. A so-called kōdansha gōdōrenshū (which we also call “the veteran campssometimes). Six branches were represented and we had a total of 46 dan attending.

It was an intense day, with a lot of technique practice as well as discussions and exchange of experience with how we conduct the training in our respective branches.

We had a couple of hours with intense training in the morning, followed by a lunch where there was also a lot of discussions. The afternoon continued in the same way, and the day ended with some much needed seihō.
