    Default Hello from Canada

    Good Day!

    My name is Brandon and I found this site while trying to research Kobudo training equipment. I train in Kobudo in a small town outside of Ottawa Ontario Canada. My dojo is a part of the Okinawa Kobudo Doushi Rensei-kai. I also train in Goju-Ryu Karate at the same dojo.

    Looking forward to learning a lot about these fabulous martial arts and to make new friends who share the same interest.

    thanks!

    Hello Brandon,

    Welcome to E-Budo. I live here in Hiroshima, Japan, and buy all my training equipment from a small store in Tokyo. I practice aikido and the store is not far from the Hombu. Actually, I prefer the lighter karate-gi to the heavier suits used in Judo.

    Best wishes,

    Good Day Sir!

    Thank you! I am glad I happened upon this resourceful site!
    Our Dojo gets equipment from a store in Ottawa. However I used a set of Shureido Sai's my one Sensei had and wanted set for myself and in my research came across this forum.
    I have a friend who is big in Aikido now after teaching and training in Karate for many years. I like chatting with him about the art.
    I myself prefer the medium to heavy Gi's. Whenever I attain black belt I think I my treat myself to a good quality Gi.

    Thanks for the message! Take care!

    Welcome to E-Budo!
    We have a number of karate-ka here, including from the Okinawan styles, so hopefully you will have many opportunities for interesting discussions.
