    Unhappy Koryu in Quebec (Canada)? / book in french?

    Hi again

    1. Does somebody know of any practioner that teach or just practice a Koryu in the province of Quebec (Canada). I doubt it very much, but it's worth asking.

    2. Are You aware of any serious books on koryu in french? If so, any titles?

    Thanks a lot
    Jimmy Francoeur

    I notice from your profile that you do the Aikibudo and I must say the Kobudo portion is probably as close as you are going to get. I missed Hitakayama when he came from Japan this time around but, staying away from lineage arguments about Tenshin Katori Shinto Ryu which I really don't care about, what he teaches is Koryu.

    As far as I know - that is about it.

    Hi Jimmy,

    the only book that comes to mind is a book: Jodo, the way of the stick by Pascal Krieger. It is in English/French. You could check with Judo International in Paris, they have a large bookshop, lots of titles in French (on koryu I don't know).

    Best regards,

    Johan Smits

    Have you taken a look at Jukado ? (http://www.jukado.com). They have a lot of interesting books and you might be able to find something there. They are in Montreal.

    As for Hatakeyama Sensei, I had the chance to participate in some of his workshop (practicing aikibudo/kobudo myself). Was really interesting even though my lack of experience did not allow me to participate in everything.

    Thanks

    Unfortunately I am a) leaving Osaka tomorrow and b) living in Quebec City.

    But in any case it does address the question about Koryu in Quebec.

    Default Please visit the hombu in Osaka

    You should visit the hombu in Osaka next time you go to Japan. You can call up to visit in advance they will be more than happy to receive you. My mother in law is also an instructor there and she is able to speak english for most of the basic stuff. If you have a chance you should really go since this dojo is also on the grounds of a shinto shrine so it is worth the time for sure.

    Have a safe trip back.

    Truly yours,

    Sebastien Cyr

    Thumbs up Thanks

    Hi Sebastien

    Thank You for the reply. I do not live in Montreal, but Your dojo look very interesting! When I will go to Montreal, maybe I can go to a couple of training sessions at Your dojo if it is possible.

    Thank You and have a nice day

    Default Koryu in Canada

    hi all. I was wondering if there are any legitimate instructors of the koryu here in Toronto, Canada. I was hoping, even if improbable, that there was a Yagyu Shingan study group around. Thanks all.

    Default MJER and MSR

    IIRC, there are Muso Jikiden Esihin Ryu aas well as Shinto Muso Ryu classes available at the Aikido Yoshinkai, under Kimeda Sensei. Website: http://www.aikido.ca/.

    Last time I was there, Ohmi Goyo Sensei was teaching iaido, but I don't know who's doing the jodo instruction.

    Ohmi Sensei is a wonderful teacher and a great guy, I just wish I had more opportunity to train with him,
