Those interested in nanbudo

In Sunday 9th September at 20:00 we have a brief demonstration. The venue is Budohall of city of Turku in old Barker weaving mill house, street address Virusmäentie 65 (3rd floor, tatami 3).

If you would like to start training nanbudo you are welcome to our group. It is a small one, so specific "beginners class" will not be organized; training times are same for all. The subjects of the training sessions will be selected in a manner that allows everyone to participate regardless the level of the trainer. The group will be divided when necessary.

For a training equipment just some jogging pants and a t-shirt or equivalent outfit will do, training is done barefooted. Later one could purchase white Japanese style training suit (for example karate suit).

Training nanbudo is relatively inexpensive. Training fee for "beginners class" is the same as for advanced, 50 euro for the rest of the year. On top of that one need to pay one-time adjoin fee for the club, 10 euro

Introduction to international nanbudo

2007-07-11 | Kalle Lönnroth

Croatian Jana Radic (1.dan) spent two weeks in Turku, from 6th to 18th August 2007. During this time she took over the trainings in Turku Nanbudoclub. Some extra trainings were organized. We saw quite a lot of new stuff and got some clarification to those that were uncertain to us.

Because our club is so small we can be gratefull for this visit with a reason. It is this very international dimension that brings up the versatility of our art and makes the training feel meaningfull. Not those things that we have learned (as if), but those questions that arose...

Local paper (Aamuset) released an article about the event: Aamuset 15/08/2007 - 1 Aamuset 15/08/2007 - 2

A hand from Croatia (year 2006)

2006-06-19 | Kalle Lönnroth

Croatian nanbudoka Jana Radic (1 dan) spent her time in Finland during weeks 23 and 24. The opportunity was not wasted as we arranged some extra trainings.

The occasion turned out most usefull. We got some new perspective to our training and most of all boost to our enthusiasm towards utilizing the international aspect of this art in the future aswell.
