I recently traveled to Japan for the 2018 International Gyokushin Ryu Aikido Gasshuku.
During the seminar I had the honor of grading for my Nidan with Washizu Terumi Kaiso , Shimura Sensei , Jon Marshall Sensei and Murat Aktas Sensei.
The grading was held on the 9th of October 2018 at the Gyokushin Ryu Aikido hombu dojo in Shizuoka.
I would like to thank my teachers, my uke Colin Niland, and my daughter Kayla for all her hard work helping me practice prior to our trip to Japan.
I also received the great honor of being presented with the title of Kyodo from Washizu Sensei. Which gives me official permission to teach Washizu Sensei’s Gyokushin Ryu Aikido in Tasmania.
