On Saturday, 18th February, the second TESSHINKAN seminar took place in Havlickuv Brod. It was given by Sensei Tomas Kopecky (1st Dan), a direct student of KAICHÔ and HANSHI Tamayose Hidemi (9th Dan) from Okinawa. That seminar was the second part of the one from the 21st January in Havlickuv Brod.
The interested participants were mainly beginners, thus Tomas began to teach the basics like MOCHI-WAZA (the grips), MOCHIKAE-WAZA (swapping the grips), TACHI-WAZA (the stances)and some basic principles. After having taught the basics a real TESSHINKAN seminar started, as usually with BÔ-NO-KIHON, continuing with some KUMI-BÔ. After having passed this the first KATA, SHÛSHI-NO-KUN (SHÔ) was practised.
The second one in H.B. also included BÔ-NO-KIHON, but it became completed with some basics of the TEKKÔ, including the TEKKÔ-NO-KIHON.
For KOBUDÔ ist not spread very wide, these seminar are going to be continued, thus real RYÛKYÛ KOBUDÔ TESSHINKAN can spread all over the Czech Republic.
