Saint Petersburg

March 31st to April 2nd 2017

Pascal Krieger (Shinto Muso Ryu Menkyo kaiden) lead a seminar in Saint Petersburg from March 31 till April 2, 2017. There were about 50 participants from various parts of Russia, but also from Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania, Estonia, Moldova, Abkhazia, Switzerland and Czech Republic.

Part of the seminar was devoted to the principles of sword use, in another part Pascal explained in details the basics of Jodo and finally, there was also time spent on kata training for more advanced jodo practitioners, members of the European Jodo federation. In addition to the original plan, Pascal included a demonstration of Japanese calligraphy. The seminar was concluded by a presentation of Shinto Muso Ryu Jodo and parallel weapons (tanjo, jutte, and kusarigama).

The training course prepared by Pascal Krieger was very stimulating and the local organizers provided ideal conditions. We very much enjoyed the seminar and we look forward to future meetings.
