The 1st Miyazaki O.B.KAI workshop for 2009 was well attended and a compete success.

One of the goals of Master Miyazaki was for everyone from the past to the present, to practice together and keep on training. We achieve a little bit of what he wanted and looking forward to the next workshop.

We thank all those students who had attended and hopefully this tradition will continue to grow into the future.
