Texas Shugyo

I had an excellent time training with some real Shugyo martial artists in Austin, TX, hosted by Eric Pearson at the Muteshokai Dojo. Eric is a serious Daito Ryu student, as we all try to be, and truly has Shugyo spirit. We were joined by another serious practitioner, Nathan Himes from Peaceful Storm Dojo outside Ft. Worth. They will help bring Daito Ryu to the next generation. — Roy Goldberg
