SENSEI RON YAMANAKA 9th DAN IN Avignon (Montfavet)
Last July, at the gym La Martelle of Montfavet near Avignon, the expert of Karate-do Goju-ryu and Ju-Jutsu Shindo-Ryu, world renowned Ron YAMANAKA 9th dan, led a training of Ju-jutsu. Invited by his counterpart and friend Roland Maroteaux, this exceptional master has conquered the participants from France, Belgium and Switzerland by his kindness and his technical knowledge.
Both for him and for the trainees, this was a first time to lead and to follow each evening, a single course of Ju-jutsu of this method born few years ago under the title: Shindo-Ryu Yamanaka-ha. Usually, the master leads international internships of Karate-do Goju-ryu.
Everyone appreciated his teaching, despite the oppressive heat that prevailed in the gym (40°C), despite the two huge fans in place at that time, which were settled at full speed. After completing the internship, each pupil received a certificate signed by the master with sympathy.
Moreover, Yamanaka Sensei has agreed the project to edit by master Maroteaux a technical book on the basis of his ju-jitsu in 2011. For this purpose, they proceeded together to take some series of techniques pictures, which some boards will appear in the next internal review "Aiki-Goshindo Kaishi” of December 2010.
A course that was beneficial to all, beginners and senpai, who helped to grasp the essence of traditional Japanese martial arts, both by the spirit of the two teachers who has significant similarities and the basic principles taught. A course of high quality, which was doubled by a Takeda-Ryu Iaido course led by Maroteaux sensei 5th dan.
