Silence before the storm

We have for a long period not been posting news on the site but that does not mean that we have not been active. We have participated in three courses and been in Seishinkan since the last news.

From 19 to 24 January Steffen and Armelle was in Hamburg on a course, more precisely Seishinkan. Every year in Hamburg the Japanese party Kagemibiraki is thrown. The week up to the party is called Kangeiko where there is training 1 hour a day. Kangeiko means “training in the cold season”. After a week of training from 7:00 to 8:00 am the Kagemibiraki party is thrown.

Wednesday the 28 January Stig and Flemming took a trip to Seishinkan.

From 21 to 22 February there was a course with Eckhardt Hemkemeier, 4 Dan from Seishinkan, in Varde. We were 26 participants and we were 5 from Fredericia. Flemming from Varde had arranged the course and the last day he got graduated to 1 kyu. Claus from Varde got graduated too, to 2 kyu. We wish them very many congratulations.

The last thing we have participated in was the course with Shimizu Sensei in Berlin. Stig and Lasse participated in the course. The course lasted for 5 days and it was great training. Besides Stig and Lasse from Fredericia, there were 5 other participants from Denmark, more exact Herlev. These were: Tim, Katrine, Mads, Ramtin and Walter. We had five nice days where we saw a bit of Berlin and got a lot of good training. At the course there were five dan-graduations (black belt). Three got 1 dan, one got 2 dan and Peter Nieblich got 4 dan. We wish them all very many congratulations with there new degrees.
