Well we have had an eventful year 2012 USMAA training camp was successful 2012 TUMAA East Seminars were as well. A training trip to Austin Texas with President of the USMAA Mike Makoid and Executive Administrator Louise Herschel to meet Sensei Matl and his students was great. They are now part of the USMAA. I hope next year is as enjoyable in the training for all of us at White River Budokan.
The TUMAA EAST training seminar will be held here again and the USMAA Annual Camp will be in St Louis this year under the direction of Syed Sensei and Omar is putting together a great camp for this summer there. I am also putting together a list of instructors for TUMAA East so email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. If you plan on attending the St Louis camp let me know if you would like me to ask Syed Sensei to consider you for teaching there. However, please dont take it personal if its not possible this year. We are also going to begin planning, along with Sensei Bill Kamataris, North American ChairPerson USMAA, and Sensei Bill Chestnut and Sensei Pat Cassidy a Regional Seminar for the USMAA in either Manchester, NH in the spring or in Kamataris Sensei’s dojo in Mass. More news about all these trainings to come within the next month. Also. go to Facebook on our dojo page, White River Budokan, to see some videos of the KoTaiShin Ryu system we have recently videoed.
