2018 was a relatively quiet year as far as Iaido Gibraltar goes. The Dojo sessions switched indoors to our small humble home. I was fortunate, however er, to be invited to teach a class at the Gibraltar Karate-do Shotokai Club during their international seminar.
Focus before Iaido When your kitchen is also your Dojo Teaching at Karate-do Shotokai, Gibraltar Kenjutsu focus Working on distance Blocking techniques Practise Tachi Uchi Talking about the importance of the centre Getting a feal for kamae 2019
We were able to bring MJER to some of the Children at the Laguna Youth Club.
A year we will all remember when everything shut down.
Moving away from two lockdowns and soon celebrating ten years of Iaido Gibraltar
