This is just a short post about a recent big event in my life. Some of you know that I am practicing martial arts for more than 30 years now. Since 2003, I am practicing Nakamura Ryu Battodo, one of the youngest Japanese martial arts, founded by Nakamura Taizaburo sensei in 1953.
Every year, a competition is organized in Yokohama by International Battodo Federation (IBF). After nearly two years of preparation, I managed to go there again, with two of my students and take part in competition and grading. My students got a shodan level (1st DAN) and I received a godan (5th DAN).
This is a small thank you to all my teachers from Serbia and Japan who dedicated their time, patience and efforts to make this happen.
