This last weekend I was blessed to be a part of a transforming event. The first annual Adult Shudokan Gasshuku was in the foothills by Ellensburg, Washington at the Lazy F Retreat Center. Gasshuku means outside training. We trained, laughed, and made old connections stronger while foraging new ones too. It was a wonderful experience and I am already looking forward to next year. The theme this year was 'DENTO' which can be translated as traditions. We honored traditions while exploring new ways of thinking about bunkai and gun/knife defenses. Fun was had all around. If you train and are at least an orange belt or higher and are 18 and older put it on your calendar for next September!
