From September 13th to 15th , 2013, Sensei Bill Kane and the Ambler Dojo hosted a weekend of training and camaraderie.  We were honored again to have Shihan Yamakura, and also a strong contingent of more than two dozen black belts, including GKK leaders Ken Maunz and Dwight Scales, school heads Nancy Ault (Maine), Frank Matt (NY), John Henderson (PA), plus Ambler’s own crew of black belts, and GKK visiting members.

      We’re taking a slightly different approach to writing an article about the weekend.  We will have a brief description of the events, promotions, and pix; but the main emphasis will be on personal impressions and learnings.  We asked each of the participants to share a highlight of their weekend, and this article will feature the common threads in what we received.
