Posted on Categories Uncategorized

The younger instructor of Bujinkan Macedonia, Marko Opachikj, on Saturday in the Hombu Dojo of „Taiyou e no Michi“ successfully passed the nidan (II dan) test. Around 30 past and current members of Bujinkan Macedonia gathered for this special occasion, who traveled to show their respect for this outstanding and esteemed member of our dojo.

Under the leadership of his teacher, shidoshi Igor Dovezenski, Opachikj started his Path on 27.02.2007. So far he had been to six summer camps, 13 international seminars organized by Bujinkan Macedonia, 47 outdoor seminars where the instructor Dovezenski held a lecture, as well as to two international seminars abroad which were taught by the shihan for Katori Shinto ryu Bujutsu – Nobutoshi Otake Sensei. Apart from this, he was studying the classical Japanese martial arts by taking part in 23 intensive seminars in the Hombu Dojo of Bujikan Macedonia, as well as in 24 one-day seminars organized by his teacher. Opachikj is responsible for teaching the new recruits in the dojo by managing the beginner group (shoshinsha), and at the same time he is the only member of „Taiyou e no Michi“ who at the same time practices all koryu traditions that are being taught in our organization (Bujinkan Takamatsu-den, Daito ryu Aikibudo and Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto ryu Bujutsu).
We congratulate Marko wholeheartedly for his current success and we wish him even greater progress in developing his personality and character as a warrior.
