    Default Lost in Western Nebraska

    I only have Sugawara Tetsutaka's Mokuroku in THE TECHNIQUES of TSKSR -- no ryu membership is claimed or implied. But I have my measure of skill in the techniques. I travel 4 hours to Scott Tullis and Muso Shinden ryu once a month. I was a college professor for 25 years. I long for training partners and have no interest in "commerce" in budo beyond sharing ... Am I in the right forum? I am in Alliance Nebraska. Surely there are some budo-interested folks out this way!

    Hello Robert,

    Welcome to E-Budo. Perhaps due to the popularity of social networks like Facebook and Twitter, forums like ours have become quieter than before. However, I am sure someone will drop by and see your threads.

    I live in Hiroshima and have never been to Western Nebraska. I also believe that the nearest TSKR dojo is quite a bit further away than your 4-hour drive. Since you have your measure of skill, as you put it, perhaps you should consider forming a study group.

    Best wishes,

    Hello and welcome to E-Budo.
    You could try posting in the Sword Arts Dojo Finder subsection in the Sword Arts forum:
    http://www.e-budo.com/forum/forumdis...ts-Dojo-Finder

    Alternatively, have you tried reaching out through Sugawara-ha TSKR's US contacts, to see whether they might know of anyone in Nebraska who also is looking for someone to train with? Perhaps there have been other inquiries and you could get a study group together. Unfortunately, it looks like the closest dojo to you is in Missouri, but perhaps Mark Jones Sensei would have some suggestions.

    Exactly. The current climate in TSKSR affairs is ... Change ... ? All I want is some training partners. Study group "unaffiliated" is just right.

    Default No TSKSR within 4 hours!

    Oh! I go to Cheyenne Budokan, Cheyenne, Wyoming, for my Muso Shinden ryu fix. Not TSKSR.

    I sorta started the Mark Jones - Sugawara Tetsutaka thing through Pat Nichols ... Nobody from that group out this way. I know or have practiced with most of those folks. I am just struggling to FIND genuine interest in this region...my town--wife's career--is around 8k. Still lot's of scattered folks around this region MIGHT be "out there".

    Koryu is an esoteric pursuit, to be sure, so finding one or more interested parties in a community of 8K would be like being one of those handful of Powerball winners last week.
