Last month Frank Nieves had the opportunity to accompany Yahagi Kunikazu Soke (Headmaster of Ryushin Shouchi Ryu) on a European tour, consisting of seminars in Caen (France), Lignano (Italy), and Vienna (Austria). Each seminar lasted about four days with approximately 6 hours of training each day. While in Italy, Frank Nieves led one of the morning seminars as a guest instructor. The seminars were well attended and it appears that the Ryushin Shouchi Ryu is growing in popularity among European practitioners.
