Denshinkan are happy to host a Gasshuku for 2016.

The planned program is to have 3 keiko each day for 3 days.

Ryutaro Tanaka, 5th Dan and GB team assistant coach will be our lead teacher for the event.

The Gasshuku is planned as a training camp rather than a seminar and is to get as many people together for practice with each other and learning together than to start teaching everyone something different or new.

Provisional timetable for the Gasshuku:

Friday 2nd September:

8am - 10am

1:30pm - 3:30pm

7pm - 9pm

Saturday 3rd September:

7:30am - 9:30am

12:30 - Lecture from guest speaker

1pm - 3pm

5pm - 7pm

Sunday 4th September:

7:30am - 9:30am

12:30 - Lecture from guest speaker

1pm - 3pm

3pm - 5pm - BKA grading to Ikkyu

5pm - 7pm

These times are subject to change and any updates will be posted ASAP

We are implementing an application and payment in advance process for the Gasshuku to keep everything simple and allow us to avoid the hassle of taking fees during the Gasshuku itself.
