This is a blog of the OIKA 2014 Okinawa trip, hosted by Sensei Bob Slywa.  This year we have a slightly bigger group with a big representation from the Central Coast, comprising of Sensei Adam, Renee, Greg, Marina, and of course me and Alex and John from Torra Martial Arts. We are all leaving as one group.

We will be joined by Celina from OIKA and her mother Angela and Mark on Sunday. 

Apart from myself and Celina everyone trains under Sensei Bob in Ryukonkai Kobudo. So this trip is primarily focused on their training.  

However I am hoping that we will do a bit of Shorin Ryu training with Iha Sensei.  Last year we did a bit and it was great fun. I am also really, really looking forward to training again with Uechi Sensei, hopefully I have improved my kata since last year! Sensei Andy Slone has also just recently moved back to Okinawa, so it will be really great to meet him.
