The NKID would like to thank Kaneda Hisato sensei Kyoshi 8th Dan, as well as Nashima Masao sensei Hanshi 8th Dan, who traveled all the way from Japan to provide us with such a wonderful seminar. They were very generous with their time, demonstrating the waza and correcting the students. We would also like to thank Inoue sensei 7th Dan from Canada and Cuong Nguyen 6th Dan from Boston, for providing additional instruction and explanations.
We would also like to call out our own Andrej Diamantstein 7th Dan, without whose vision and determination the seminar would not have been possible. Also for over all planning and organization Isaac Pryka.
The following members of the Dojo were responsible for specific assignments:
Joseph Seiter – meals and entertainment
