click on this picture of a dragon fly to see it even bigger. Dragonflies are called either tonbo or katsumushi and are a favourite symbol of Japanese swordsmen throughout history Term 4 starts next Saturday 11 October. We will train until 13 December. The Victorian State Elections are currently scheduled for 29 November , which means on that day there will be no training as the hall will be used as a polling booth. Also, I will be in Japan from 15/11 to 29/11 so I will miss three trainings (15/11, 22/11 and 29/11). In that case I will nominate one or more of the senior students to open and close the the dojo, and to run training. Saturday 13 December will be our annual shochugeiko ; our all-day summer training and farewell to 2014. It will go from 9am until 5pm.
