The Federation sponsored Tai Kai in the Tr-State area was on this date in 2013 with the efforts of the Genbukan and Bykakkokan dojos. The event brought together teachers and practitioners from Japan, Hong Kong, and the well known leads for other ryuha around the US. They were open to sharing their knowledge with practitioners regardless of style. For the tournament, there was quite the group of people from different parts of the US competing and quite the memories were made.
The seminar and tournament were the first of its kind in the Tr-State area and we will be planning another in the Tri-State area again in the future. Thank you to Mike Femal sensei of Konjaku Kioi Dojo for letting us use his pictures!
