Tomboyama Nihonto Tanren Dojo concluded the first two classes of the 2011 school year last week. The dojo hosted a Basic Forging Course last week, as well as a 2-day session of our Kajioshi Course over the weekend.
We are proud to announce that the March Basic Forging Course was a great success. It was a pleasure working with the three students of the class, Aaron, Jesus, and Justin.
One student, Aaron, stayed over the weekend to continue his studies further with the Kajioshi Course taught over the weekend. Although the first day of class was largely still spent on the grinder refining shape, by the second day Aaron moved to water-stones and learn the basic technique used with them.
