    Default Aikijujutsu in Philadelphia

    Announcing: Daito-ryu in Philadelphia

    Hello fellow budoka. Derek Steel here. I am a practitioner of Daito-ryu aikijujutsu, training since 1992 under Katsuyuki Kondo in Tokyo. I'm sure I've met a lot of you at Kondo sensei's various U.S. seminars over the years. I've recently relocated to Philadelphia, PA and would like to start a Daito-ryu study group in the area, and eventually a branch dojo. If anybody's in the area and has an interest, please email me at <dsteel@daito-ryu.org> for more information.

    Thank you,
    Derek Steel

    P.S. I'm hoping to do a similar thing with my Shinto Muso-ryu jo practice, and I've posted a similar message on the jo forum, in case anyone's interested in that.

    Hi Derek,

    Finally came back, huh? Good luck to you in Philly.

    "Put strength into your practice, and avoid conceit. It is easy enough to understand a strategy and guard against it after the matter has already been settled, but the reason an opponent becomes defeated is because they didn't learn of it ahead of time. This is the nature of secret matters. That which is kept hidden is what we call the Flower."

    Mr. Steel, I am located in Southern New Jersey, and would like to know where you will be conducting the study group. I do know there is another group in northern NJ, but it is quite a ride for me.

    Also, welcome back.

    Hey Nathan, Rick and all,

    Yep, I'm finally back, ready to rock and roll! I trust you all have been holding down the fort while I've been gone? I'm really looking forward to getting a few lads (or lasses, of course) together here in Philly to swap a few chops with. Or let me put that more formally: "...to continue practicing the fine art of Daito-ryu." If you know anyone in this area interested in such arcane things, please let them know that I'm getting this off the ground and would be happy to hear from them. Ditto for the Shinto Muso-ryu jo.

    Over 'n' out!

    Beer DTR in Philly

    Derek,

    Welcome back to DTR. It is great that you are setting up a study group in Philly. If there is anything that I can do to help please ask.

    I'll see you in October at the NYC Metro seminar. Then we can talk more over a few cold ones.
