From 24th of February 2006 until 28th the TESSHINKAN HONBU-KAI trainer of the German KOBUDO KWAI and technical director of the TESSHINKAN in Europe, Frank Pelny, had been staying in Kaliningrad for the first time. He had been invited by the president of the KOBUDď-federation of Kaliningrad, Sensei Pavel Dolgachov
The lessons had already started in the evening of friday, 24th February. Every participant and some experienced audience followed the things Pelny Sensei said. It seemed that there was a great interest in Kobud˘ of everone.
After the first lesson the sensei had some interesting sermons based on the TESSHINKAN style. Many Kobud˘ styles and organization exist in Russia, Sensei Dolgachov referred, but none of them has the advantages TESSHINKAN has:
* a real Okinawan Sensei who is leading this style,
* a direct and true line of traditors to the roots of RY█KY█ KOBUDď,
* good methods in teaching which begins with the KY█-grades,
* friendly relationships to various masters from all over the world and karate-styles.
The seminar started officially on Saturday. The training took several hours: Saturday 10 am till 6pm, Sunday 11am till 6pm and Monday 5pm till 7pm.The whole KY█-programme was taught. Those lessons were very tiring, the exercises of BUNKAI did not only exert the body, the mind also was exerted. But everybody was able to follow the taught things, what Sensei Dolgachov made possible by his earlier training with the students.
After the seminar some students used the offered possibility of examinations in TESSHINKAN. Dimitri Ganyukov and Ruslan Klimash achieved the 4th, Wadim Borunov the 2nd KY█.
On Monday morning there was some time left to visit the sights. Much thanks to Pavel, Dimitri and their families for their care for Frank.
All participants were enthusiastic about his knowledge, skills and of course about his teaching methods. After all we can just say : TO BE CONTINUED.
