Gergely Vass and his dojo Hirabu are made members of Ryoshinkan Dojo at the March Byfleet Session.
We go into lockdown for a loooong time but thanks to Zoom we are able to train pretty intensely for the next few months.
Gradually, Kashiwa and Ryoshinkan are able to go back to normal training with COVID measures in place.
