There was a large difference in peoples earlier exposure to Sensei Taira's training and so we paired people with more experience with those that had less, while Sensei concentrated the weekend on Seyunchin.

The teaching was excellent as always and we were helped to understand even more detail through the interpreting of Kentaro Aragaki and Mark Loucks. Many thanks to them.

Also during the seminar Sensei Taira promoted Chris Langello to Rokudan and Nancy and John Eccles to Godan. Congratulations to them on this achievement.
