Friday July 29th I was fortunate to have visitors! Shihan Brian Tumiel (L) and Shihan Anthony Giufre (R) of New York’s Hakkoryu Sanrokujin Dojo arrived in the afternoon.
Later that day, Andrew Bryant of Hakkoryu Shinwakan Dojo in Indiana joined us for dinner and the four of us enjoyed good practice together for the rest of the weekend.
Saturday afternoon, I was happy to present Bryant sensei with Yondan (4th degree). Congratulations, Andrew!
