Kinanbutaiso != Wasuremono

Morning sun, cool wind at the coast of the Baltic Sea. Up here in the north, even the capital is calm during the morning, only sounds coming from the birds and perhaps from the city workers on a construction work at Kaivopuisto.

Suddenly I felt and urge to do Kinanbutaiso, the fundamental exercise of Nanbudo. It was not forgotten…

Lets see what the future brings for the Finnish Nanbudo. For now the only club, located in Turku, has decided to stop their weekly trainings until further notice. There are plans for the reincarnation of the Helsinki Nanbudo Club, which never actually existed.
