I think all would agree that our training visit to Hilfield Friary was a truely memorable experience. On Saturday and Sunday morning Derek led us through 8 hours of training, from basic stances and techniques to the more complicated.
A spirit of cooperation was stressed and practiced. Neat, I think, because many of our MayoShinDo values are those of the Brothers and the community at Hilfield.
As usual, as well as practicing our techniques and movement there were plenty of insights from our Chief into what we do and why we do it.
