The 2017 Summer Gasshuku was held at Milton Abbey School in Dorset from the 17th to 20th July.

The course was well attended, clubs from all over the UK were supported and it was great to see our Spanish friends over for this one. This Gasshuku was extra special as its Washinkais 40th Year.

Dan Gradings were conducted on the Wednesday, conditions were difficult but the students dug deep and the standard was high. Wednesday evening was quiz night, and it was great fun! Team Honbu #Ninja won, the first time The Honbu has submitted a team.

Thursday saw once again our guest instructor Sensei Ohta of the JKA teaching the katas Enpi and Sochin.

It was a great gasshuku and we look forward to seeing everyone on the Autumn Gasshuku 10 to 12th November at The Honbu, Wincanton.
