We are back again

This will be the 12’th Kaigousuru Taikai we organise. The first Taikai we organised was exactly 23 years ago in 1997. Then we organised 10 more Taikai until the last one in 2007. We had 1-20 instructors teaching 80-150 people from 10-20 countries on our Taikai seminars. A few times we had pretty wild parties with rock bands playing in our Dojo. We are older and more mature now so there won’t be any wild parties this time (I think?).

Why again, we said the 2007 was the BEST and the LAST Training Party. Well my Dojo, the Kaigozan Dojo turns 30 years in October, we have very good economy in the Dojo and I asked our people if they want to do a big seminar and party celebrating our 30 year anniversary without worrying about money. So we’re gonna do something big worthy our brand name Kaigousuru.

Update late August: I realise that this is not going to be a big seminar because of the you know what. But we are still gonna do it!
