2013 Tokyo embu: favorite photos

Last weekend, we went to the 2013 Yoshinkan Embu Taikai (or demonstration convention) in Tokyo.  A good time was had by all, and Payet-sensei generously paid for us to have a drinking party afterwards at an izakaya in Tokyo.

After living with Nick for half a year, here are two of my favorite photos from the embu…



Just joking.  Nick is a great guy to live with.

We three kenshusei–Takenaga, Izzy, and myself–did an embu with the weekend part-time kenshusei.  Here is a photo from our embu.  This was probably the worst moment; we are a mass of uncoordinated chaos trying to work out ude garami.  However, my face can be seen clearly!! ; )


Now here we are back together, trying to work out ushiro kokyu nage


Payet-sensei watched embus from morning to night.  I don’t know how he managed to stay focused.  Aikido shugyo!
