Day 1278: Kata, kumite & calligraphy ... oh my!





Kasey, photo & i-pad collage















I am a day late in posting this, 
since I took a day to mention "the $5 man" here.
Do me a favor? Tell me your # choices in order?
It's scientific research on my part.
Good friend Norma suggested that our choices,
which were identical, might be age related?
So I asked WonderWoman and hers were the same,
except she added a 4th choice, #8 ... "tall".
WonderWoman is younger and tall.
Boom.










On Saturday afternoon, three seminars in four hours ...
 


held at Shito-Ryu Karate-Do Genbu-Kai Hombu Dojo
 61 degrees, Santa Ana, CA




Session one: 
Twenty six black belts learned or worked on advanced kata,







Anan, taught by outstanding instructor, Minobu Miki.


 
 Miki Sensei, Demura Sensei & Trevor

Session two:
 Kumite training with USA National Champ, Brian Hilliard.





Serious junior and lower belts were invited to learn & train.



Marco, Hannah, Senpai Michael, Claire & John









and a group kumite photo.








Session three:

Calligraphy (Japanese brush printing) with Demura Sensei.






We were given brush, paper & ink and practice paper.
Demura Sensei taught us the sequence of strokes.









We learned two kanji, and ...
all received a t-shirt with Demura Sensei's caligraphy for "ki"


 











 and a certificate.


Lots of happy faces ...







ask John.
Our thanks to Hokubei Karate-do Shihankai Sensei's.







Some of the special moments are in the office, after.







A smile for Monday ...
