Tristan Sutrisno's Bushi No Te Summercamp in 30
It' been 30 years since Tristan Sutrisno began his Bushi No To summercamp dedicated to martial excellence. I attended the first 10 years, but time and distance meant I discontinued attending. This weekend they are having the 30th camp and we wish them well, as they will have fine training, among which is Silat, Karate, Tai Chi, Aikido and other arts. His Bushi No Te is grown out of his father's organization on Indonesia. (This is not related to the use of Bushi No Te for my organiization)
That camp among other activities there was Aikido, Karate, for the instructors there a study of Nijushiho, crossing a rope bridge while retaining hold of your weapon of choice, 4 am training sessions, application study of Shotokan, and even a war game crawling around in the rain. We held it at an old Boy Scout's campground.
Pictured are a few of the instructors there.
