Great article on Glenn Cunningham

The list of member dojos has been updated on here. It is probably still incomplete. There's supposed to be 50 shibu dojos but Taira sensei has the records. I'll try to get that updated when he comes to NZ in October.

The seminar list has been moved to this site also, and you can see it in the tab above. It's easier to update that on here than on the old site, and it's all in one place, so we might try to keep that a bit more complete. It depends on the seminar organisers sending in links and graphics though.

Site migration: step 1


It's been a long time since there's been new material on the blog. I've been traveling a lot - Italy, USA, training, and planning for Taira sensei to come to New Zealand in October.

Amongst all of that, many of you know we have been talking about migrating the Gojuryu Kenkyukai web site somewhere else. The site is old fashioned, we didn't have good integration with PayPal or other things, and  many people were members without paying, because we'd messed up that PayPal and a few other things. On top of that, the server just died and it look unrecoverable. We can restore the old functionality from backups, but that is a lot of work for nothing.

We are going to migrate all the old video, probably to Vimeo, and properly manage it using commercial software. We will put up the accounts we have on record, and we'll progress with the grand re-organisation we've been planning. We'll even put up new video for subscribers.

So bear with us, we're doing things. And there will be video from the NZ seminars, accessible through the 'new' site.
