A full Thursday evening class at Ryu Honbu Dojo. Nikolai Zherdev Sensei and 4 of his students from the Moscow Kiryukan Dojo are staying at here at Ryu Honbu for a few weeks of intensive training. It was nice to see everyone again (see old posts about my Russia seminar last November). For everyone other than Nikolai Sensei, it is their first time in Japan. With such a hard training schedule, I hope they can find some time to enjoy the culture. Good luck to Victor and Vladimir on their upcoming tests!
