The second of the planned international seminars in 2016 with the best European kobudo masters, organized by the Organization dedicated to the study of traditional Japanese martial arts, has finished.
On the three-day event participated several students of Katori Shinto ryu Macedonia, as well as one student of shidosha Erik Louw from the Netherlands.
Teacher Louw during the seminar passed down techniques for simultaneous drawing and cutting with a Japanese sword (iaijutsu/battojutsu), including combat with a katana (kenjutsu). He didn’t leave out the techniques with a long staff (bojutsu), as well as naginata kata.
As always, the teacher Louw unselfishly and carefully transferred his knowledge in his distinctive manner – through humor and laughter.
The free time during the breaks was used to visit the Osogovski Monastery and Kriva Palanka, as well as the Kuklica site, and the ancient city Kratovo.
Until our next encounter…
