Sensei was awarded the rank of godan (5th degree black belt) last weekend! Ya-tah!

We worked on some of the bokken techniques that they worked on at the instructor's seminar last weekend and the hand techniques that they inspire. We worked on the shomenuchi tai sabaki and, from there, progressed to several bokken-dori techniques (mostly kokyunage variations) and kumitachi (paired bokken work).

After class, many of us took sensei out to Kikuya for sushi. We (including T.!) made speeches extolling our love and appreciation for the gift of our teacher. Sensei also spoke about how his students inspire him to teach.
