Memorial course 2009

Post  josh johnson on Mon Jul 06, 2009 3:48 am

Good Morning everyone, many thanks to everyone who attended the 2009 Memorial course, special thanks to Dave Slaney and Dave Fletcher who were the excellent Host's and provided the venue once again, to Christine and Anita who dealt efficiently with all the administration on the day
All our European and U.K. Instructors who gave us their skill and enthusiasm to make the day enjoyable and successful.
We welcomed for the first time Sensei Dave Treadwell and his students from the Furi Sutairu Karate Association and the old Milners Marauders who turned up, John Bestwick, Steve Barrass, and Mike Sanderson, it was also nice to talk to O-Sensei's youngest son Danny Milner.
Thank you all once again and I look forward to seeing you all at the next course in October.
Yours in Bushido
Josh.

Hi Karajutsu

It was a pleasure meeting you on Sunday and I'm so glad the Forum got you back into training. It was nice to see John on Sunday too.

You make friends in the IBA and they are friends for life, bonded in Budo and all sons and daughters of our spiritual father O' Sensei Milner.

Best wishes

Dave

Course feedback

Post  Ninj on Thu Jul 09, 2009 2:54 am

Hi all

Here is some very kind feedback from our guests at the Memorial Course and some photos courtesy of Sensei Graham Ravey and Kana, words kindly supplied by Josh Johnson...

Hi Josh,
It was really nice to catch up with you and the guys. Here are some photographs which Kana took. I am not sure if you want to use them. I guess you have many already sent to you.
I didn't expect any expences after all you allowed us to have a stall.
I hope we can get together again sometime and have a training session. I enjoyed working out with your students. They show good spirit and a passion for learning.
Osu,
Graham

Hi Josh,
I would just like to say thank you for a excellent training session today in worksop this is the 1st time i have attended with 2 of my students and was made welcome from all that took part
I teach and train in shotokan but it is a great way to see different styles and concepts on training so thanks again also to all sensei that took the time to teach and it is great to see all students getting a cert from the day that is signed but all sensei
