Darlington Northern Seminar 2009
Budokan Dojo played host to the Northern Seminar for the 15th consecutive year and we enjoyed several grading successes in iaido.
Also a big well done to John Burn From Ojika Dojo in Newcastle - he got his Yondan. John had been supplementing his training by practising at our Durham site most Mondays.
Wait a moment. Kevin Ainsley, who has been training hard to pass his Ikkyu in Iaido also found time to have a baby. Well, his wife did ( I am told he had 'a very small part' to play in proceedings!!!!).Congratulations to you both on the birth of your son Isaac. The drinks are on you!!
