SEMINAR FORMAT

Seminar on Shinsa with focus on Kodansha Shinsa

The seminar is open to all ranks and will in part focus on Kondasha Shinsa. Kodansha Shinsa is high rank Shinsa, Shinsa for 5th Dan and above, that is graded in front of a national testing panel. Those who are eligible for Kodansha Shinsa will practice together during the entire seminar. Sunday will be devoted to Kodansha Shinsa in particular (lower ranks will be able to participate or watch).

In addition, we have an online Kodansha study group so we can prepare for the seminar together. Participants are asked to regularly post media/questions and may receive feedback. For your first post, please state the rank you are going for and a short video of 1 minute tachiai with reiho.
