This post is also available in: Russian

Ando Sensei recently returned from 6 days in Novosibirsk, Russia. Andrey Podoynikov Sensei and the Shosetsukan Dojo hosted him for 4 days of training. About 140 kids and adults attended the weekend seminar. There were students from Irkutsk city, Moscow city, Naberezhnie Chelni city, and Krasnodar city.

Congratulations to Denis Letin on his successful shodan grading and thanks again to Andrey, his wife, Kumakura-san, and all the students, friends and family for the help and hospitality during the week.
