Joint Training

On Sunday, October 15, 2023, we held a joint training with Tokyo Horinouchi Dojo members at Komatsubashi Branch Office. About 30 people from Horinouchi Dojo and Fukagawa Arakaki Dojo gathered to practice together.

With the goal of the upcoming competitions and judging sessions, the students performed in front of everyone so that they could make big movements without being conscious of it, and they had time to get used to the tension of being paired up with opponents they do not usually practice with.

We have had several joint training sessions in the past, and I believe that as the number of exchanges has increased, it has led to the improvement of both dojos’ abilities as well as their individual skills. The spirited shouts of “kiai” spread throughout the practice hall, and we had a very meaningful time.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Kazama Sensei of Hachioji Dojo and all dojo students for suggesting the joint training. Let’s continue to work hard together.
