The Challenge of the Winter Seminar (Kangeiko)
As it is already tradition at the beginning of the year the winter seminar took place from January 14th to 20th (every morning from 6:30am to 7:15am); this time we reached the maximum of 94 participants, and 47 of them, 10 more than last year, attended every lesson. The winter seminar was permeated by the motive “the objective is the training of Ki strength”, and the number of female participants increased as well. Every day all participants – from youth to the more than 70 years old - took the challenge, and some of them even went more than two hours. And the atmosphere raised even more as we distributed information about the practice every day quickly via e-mail.
