At long last, we’ve coerced the bank enough and are happy to present the payment instructions. All the information can be found on the information page, but here are the specific payment instructions:
Payment is due via SWIFT to our IBAN SE53 9500 0099 6034 0341 6427 with Nordea Bank AB, SE-105 71 Stockholm, BIC-address NDEASESS for international payments, or Plusgironummer 341642-7 for domestic payments.
Please make sure to put “TAIKAI” and your unique number (included in the sign-up e-mail) in the message field, as this is the ONLY way we have to correlate payments!
All of you who registered before today, please do the sums using the information page and use the above information to pay for the seminar. As of now the script that creates the registration e-mail contains the payment instructions as well.
Finally our sign-up form is online. We’ve had some unforeseen and unfortunate hiccups along the way (including a slow bank employee), so we’ve decided to open the sign-up and opt for payment instructions later. Don’t worry – they WILL come later, though 😛
So – without further ado – click on the Sign-up form link in the header menu and prepare for Tai Kai Sweden 2012!
The sign up form is closed now, we need time to sort and prepare. But… You can still come to the Tai Kai and sign up & pay (no extra charge!) at the door, there is no too late date. Yes we have places, just come!
147 people from 15 countries.
We have support from 19 of the 24 Swedish Bujinkanförbundet dojo’s.
I’m on my way to Arlanda to pick up Duncan and Steve soon, tomorrow I’ll pick up Sveneric and Rob on Friday. So everyone is coming. I will be pretty busy from now on and i won’t have time to update this blog any more. Follow us on twitter @taikai2011, use the hashtag #tks2011 or mention @taikai2011 if you tweet about the Tai Kai.
Apparently Hatsumi Soke started teaching Shindenfudo-ryu Iai, as a second theme for this year in May. In 1998 Hatsumi Soke taught Shindenfudo-ryu taijutsu and sword, you might want to check out the videos from 1998 to see how Soke used this big sword. However, he might teach with a different sword now (I don’t know). However there is still three more months for the guys in Japan to figure it out. I’m sure the Taikai will be interesting for everyone attending, I hope you can make it.
The sign-up form will be available later in July.
On the Facebook event page we can see that there is 51 attending, 118 maybes, and 776 people who hasn’t made up their minds yet. This is interesting for us to see, but from experience we can’t trust this system. People have confirmed before and never showed up, it is to easy to just say yes without meaning it. The only way to confirm your place is through our sign-up form that will be up later in July.
We also updated the Information page, please read it before sending us questions!
