I'm a 2nd dan, and have been practicing Daito Ryu near Osaka, Japan under Kenkichi Ohgami, (8th dan from Takuma Hisa) for the last five years. I'm planning to come home and visit relatives and friends in Seattle for the month of March (2004). If anyone in the Seattle area is interested in training together with me, please let me know. If there are enough people, we can start a study group. Then Ohgami sensei, who is planning to visit the USA later in the year, could stop off in Seattle. Looking forward to hearing from any people who are sincerely interested.
