On the Saturday 7th of March, 13 different kōdansha (higher dan grades) gathered for the spring instructors seminar in dojo of Stockholm Södra. It was a full day training for those who have 3rd dan or higher, and the main focus of the day was to share experience and go over different techniques at yūdansha level (black belt level). There was also a theoretical part after lunch where we went through the basics of the competition rules and judging of embu. The plan is that we will have a more formal training of national judges later in the year. In summary it was a day that left all participants happy,  with some question marks straightened out, and several new ideas and ways to practice our techniques to bring home.
