We are already almost three months into 2022, so it is time to focus on some exciting updates for the MSR Canada Branch. If you are a current member, you are already aware of these excitements. But if you are not a member, here is your opportunity to start learning Meifu Shinkage Ryu without any excuses.
- MSR Canada now has a dedicated Learning Hub for members across Canada. This learning hub contains various resources including videos to continue your learning in between your training sessions.
- MSR Canada now has incorporated the Hanbojutsu. A hanbo is a stick of 90 centimetres and is used in combination with the shuriken. A special version of the hanbo - called the Shuken - is also taught to more advanced students.
- We now have incorporated Nikon or Nunchaku kata (forms). We use a safety version of the Nunchaku to teach members a total of 10 kata. The Nunchaku is a personal favourite of the current grandmaster of MSR, Soke Otsuka in Japan. He redeveloped these 10 katas to continue to enjoy learning.
