Training in the South

I have just returned from my training trip from the South.

It started with a flight to Riga, Latvia, which continued to Milan, Italy. In Milan I took part on a Jodo seminar in Rasen dojo, which was conducted by Vito Tattoli 6 dan accompanied by his wife, Linda Tattoli 6 dan. Photos of this part of the trip are available at Flickr.

On Sunday we went to Pavia, Italy of which also there are photos at Flickr.

Monday night I took the only daily train via Venezia to Ljubljana, Slovenia. Don’t know why the other one was taken out from the traffic…

Time in Ljubljana went mostly at the secret trainings of Ryukyu Kobujutsu, several photos of the week are available at Picasaweb.
