My Kenshusei Journey: Week 4

Glenn Riley with Richard Amos and Takeshi Kitagawa

20 March 路 New York, NY, United States

Final week of Kenshusei training at the WTKO Honbu Dojo in New York. Although I still have a week left, the training has been incredible, intense, and very rewarding. I have missed my family terribly, and I will miss everyone at the WTKO Honbu and Earth Yoga.

Great morning training with one of Sensei's private students who I will really miss. Class covered the last two of the 26 Kata I have been lucky enough to be taken through ( Meikyo and Wankan). My last full day in New York before heading home tomorrow. It has been an unbelievable experience.
