Good job your spelling is good apart from its Ninjutsu not 'Ninjitsu' in your profile, hows Gary Arthur?

Thanks for the correction Saru. He is very well. On form as usual. A highly impressive lesson today. A real bone crunching one, splashes of humour & plenty of dummy squealing.
In following month's video's will be available on U-Tube.

Actually I think he is. You going to be there Gary?

Depends entirely on how its formatted and whether i get the chance to roll with Gary Arthur, Car park or indoors I don't mind...Car park pref i like natural surroundings..:)

Plus need to run it past my Instructor as per the different org training...

How come Norm not going...?

Will see how things pan out..but a mass car park brawl sounds fun...:)

3 lessons, and my 4th on wednesday :) Yeah Im noob, I know the score! Maybe in two year's.. perhaps a little less, some shoot's will begin to show.. :)

Initially I thought Muay Thai was the right thing, but it was too formal.
Less time was devoted towards respect, the ritualistic kneeling, bowing, whereas so far, in Toshindo, this is fundamental. That's important I think.

Anyway this is about Stephen K Hayes UK Seminar!
Anyone coming to Northampton? My University is here, so I'll be going.

The 3rd Stephen K Hayes UK Seminar
Northampton July 20th - 23rd July 2007

This years is the third Stephen K Hayes seminar in the UK and will be even bigger and better than the two previous years.In 2005 The seminar was only two days, and last year we added a Friday night session making it a full weekend. This year due to the growth and interest in the Stephen K Hayes Martial Arts we are adding a Monday to the event for advanced training for Black Belts and Instructors regardless of organisation. There will also be the chance to test for both the Classic Kihon Diplomas and in the art of To-Shin Do. The course therefore, for those wishing to participate in the whole seminar will start on Friday evening at 19:00 and finish at 14:00 on the Monday. See the schedule below

Schedule
Friday 19:00-21:00
This will be a very special training where Mr Hayes will answer questions relating to the ninja arts that he has studied and the art of To-Shin Do. This format has been run in some of the seminars that Mr Hayes has taught in the USA and has been very successful allowing students to getting answers to those burning questions.

Saturday 10:00-21:00
Following registration Mr Hayes will lead the seminar participants through both classical techniques and the modern adaptions to those techniques. It has been discussed that this year Mr Hayes will be looking at techniques chosen from the black belt sylabus, which includes techniques and kata from schools such as Takagi Yoshin Ryu, Gyokko Ryu, and Kukishinden Ryu etc. There will also be a ground fighting course delivered by To-Shin Do instructors in the evening.

Sunday 10:00-17:00
Continuing the theme of the Saurday Mr Hayes will introduce various weapons into the training. there will also be an opporunity to test for Kihon in the various classical martial arts including sword and taijutsu. For those involved in To-Shin Do there will be a grading opportunity for people following this curriculum.

NO,

somebody slapped me because I did not say hello.....
here is a short discription of who I am.... sorry

Johan D'hondt


gmunoz of
Central Valley To-Shin Do on the carolinabujindo forum asked me this
======================================================
Johan, if you don't mind me asking. Do you train with a training group in Belgium? Is there a Quest dojo there? I notice that your videos have another guy in a To-Shin Do doji. Does he train as well? Do you have any previous martial art experience?
======================================================


I started training at the end of 1990 when I turned 18 years old, before that age, my parents did'nt allow me to do martial arts.....because that was something they judged "to violent". it was NO for almost anything....but they would let me do JUDO, but I did not want to do Judo....I felt Judo was to restrictif for self defense....

in my small town there was a new dojo, there were some guy's dressed in black that teached "Ninjutsu, the art of the ninja", so I said to my parents... LET me do THAT....(without knowing exactly what "that" was myself).

I trained in that dojo for a couple of months, then the dojo closed for different raisons....luckely, from time to time, a guest teacher came to that dojo (Johan F. Declercq, nidan). When the dojo closed, he proposed me to come at his house for training, wich I did for about 2 years, every weekend (I had to take the train to go there). After that, he left for the USA, he now lives in Tuscon. At that time, we already followed the "Stephen K. Hayes Kasumi An training program", I earned a 6th kyu on februari 10, 1996, when I travelled to Germany to take my test with Andrea Rees (she used to train with An-Shu Hayes). I also came to the USA during the 90's when training was still in the barn dojo in Germantown, Ohio (I did dignitary protection seminar in 1992 and Warrior Quest Level 5 seminar in 1994). On other occassions I met/trained with An-Shu Hayes during several Mikkyo seminars given in Germany. I also trained with Brin Morgan, Hans Hesselman, Jean Debets, J.P.Seibel, Court Elliot,...

In 1998, I started my own bussiness, so, a lot of time and money went there to get me going, after a few years, my shop started doing really well (I was rewarded "best shop in belgium" by a French specialised magazine in 2003), I kept training with a friend of mine during most of that time, but he now has serious back problems as a result of a traffic accident.

in 2005, I trained with An-Shu in Germany and in 2006 in the UK

The other person (Andy Migneau) you see in the video wearing a To-Shin Do family crest, is my Training Buddy in the Black belt long distance program.

He has a small self-defense training group, based on ninjutsu, he was looking for valuable material for self-defense... a mutual friend introduced us, and we started training the dvd material...

No, there is no quest dojo in belgium, no there is no training group in belgium, no there is no training group in france...........(so far)

(CAN YOU GUY'S SEE HOW LUCKY YOU ARE?)

I started to train with 2 new people since the end of november 2006 on the to-shin do material, I hope that they will become "official" long distance student very soon....
I hope that my website will interest even more people into becoming Practioners of To-Shin Do, and one day, get the movement started on the continent....

does that answer some of your questions?

Johan
