Haru Matsuri 2018
On the first Saturday of March, Tong Sensei and select members of Tokumeikan will be putting on a demonstration of Yagyu Shinkage Ryu Heiho and Yagyu Shingan Ryu Taijutsu in Toronto for Haru Matsuri 2018, the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre’s annual Spring Festival.
We will be demonstrating alongside four of the GTA’s other famous koryu groups like Niten Ichi Ryu, Takamura-ha Shindo Yoshin Ryu, Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu, and Ono-ha Itto Ryu.
We will update this news item as we receive more information.
Mexico Seminar 2018
Next March, Tong Sensei will be conducting a series of seminars in Yagyu Shinkage Ryu kenjutsu in Tijuana, Mexico for our Mexico group, Muso Dojo. Dates have yet to be confirmed.
For more information about these seminars and how to join them, please visit their website at: Muso Dojo
Kajitsuka Soke Seminar 2018
In July 2018, Tokumeikan will be hosting Kajitsuka Soke as he once again graciously comes to visit us and conduct seminars in Yagyu Shinkage Ryu Heiho and Yagyu Shingan Ryu Taijutsu in the Greater Toronto Area.
Locations and dates have yet to be determined and will depend on Soke’s schedule. For those coming from far away, to aid in your planning, the two seminar series (a 2-day Shinkage Ryu seminar and a 2-day Shingan Ryu seminar) will likely be held on the first two weekends in July (either June 30 – July 1, July 7-8, or July 14-15). Some, if not most, of the seminars will likely be held at Kushindokai Karate and Fitness in Orangeville. Those coming from far away are advised to book hotels in Brampton. More news will follow as we get closer to the date.
