We had terrific fun at Bonenkai! My great thanks to all those who came and supported it.

Look for my Under the Blade 2011 this January.

Please have a safe and very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

2010 Bonenkai Training and Celebration

Seasons Greetings and Merry Christmas!

We’ve nailed down the date for our annual Bonenkai training and celebration for Saturday, December 18th!

Join us as we recap this year’s training in “Shinobigokoro” and “Rokkon Shojo” from 1-5pm at the Tenshinkan Dojo, the Japanese Culture Center at 1016 West Belmont Ave in Chicago. Cost for the afternoon training will be $30.00.

After training, we’ll retire just across the street to “Mi Tierra Cocina Mexicana” for some of the best food and margaritas in Chicago!

We’ll also enjoy a spirited game of “White Elephant” gift swap, so please bring a wrapped gift for exchange and possible savage, bloody combat. Last year, I brought a whole smoked ham. Yes, a ham. It killed.

Here’s hoping you can join us!



I would like to add - if you are a Shidoshi and are interested in coming, please feel free to attend as my guest and share your thoughts and experiences from your own year of training.

The Bujinkan is incredibly diverse with many different perspectives. When we share these perceptions with each other it can only strengthen our training and help us navigate this sometimes confounding warrior art.

Hoping we'll see you!
