Dear Gentlemen, TaiKi Friends,

It is with great pleisure and satisfaction we can let you know that our 3d TaiKi European Gasshuku was a succes.
As years before the gasshuku took place in the unique surroundings of the Swedish woods and close to a beautifull lake near Lygnared. (30 km from Gothenburg)
The atmosphere was great, sunny, inspiring and full of energy. In such an area and with such kenpoka it may happen one feels easily and positively loaded by the TaiKi spirit.
Some of the participants even admitted that after the good training, nice meals and evening program, one still had so much energy one did stay awake whole night discussing and talking.
Yet there awaited a new training at 7 o'clock in the morning. After that some took a swim in the sort of ionized water of the get really refreshed for the coming trainingsessions.
The teaching was done by the TaiKi teachers sensei McDonnagh, Jan Kallenbach, Wiert Postema and Bert de Waart.
There was a special teacher meeting, a conference among the leading people in Europe, and we knew nice evening programs with video material and had several kenpoka exposing the influence of TaiKi budo on their lives.
After 3 days it was all over and did the participants at sunday-afternoon go back to there different countries. Mostly by taxi and airplane.
Thank you sensei Marshall and your team for the great time!
Next year same place and at 13-16th of august 2009.
See you there,
