The 11th Iaido Koryu Seminar with Kobayashi sensei and Ito sensei took place last weekend in Brussels. It was truly amazing to see Kobayashi sensei and Ito sensei again, the first time after the covid times. Very memorable teaching and training; with overflowing swords and the opponents just in front
There were participants from Spain, France, Italy, Israel, Lithuania and of course Belgium. You really made it successful weekend.
