Location: Kodokan, Moscow, Russia Dates: October 14th, 2006 Chief Instructor: Shihan Ivan Titenkov, 6th Dan Assistant Instructor: Sensei German Stasenko
On the 14th of October, Shihan Ivan and Sensei German were invited by Sergey Kosorotov to hold an open Tsu Shin Gen seminar at the Kodokan Dojo in Moscow. Attending at the seminar were several sportsmen from Ashihara and Kyokushin Karate. Shihan Ivan and Sensei German showed the basic and technical aspects of Tsu Shin Gen for the participants who really liked the standing fight combined with grappling that Soke Cook has developed. The seminar, which lasted for three hours, was much appreciated by the participants.
Shihan Ivan has since the beginning of October been teaching Tsu Shin Gen at the Kodokan Dojo three times a week. We wish him all the luck in the future with this new group!
One of Russians biggest martial arts magazine Dodze covered the seminar as a follow up on their article series of Tsu Shin Gen development in Russia. Shihan Ivan is the Russian Country Representative of TSG and has there fore a big part in the future of Tsu Shin Gen in Russia!
