A Celebration in honour of Sensei Haydn Foster 7th dan I.O.A.

Sunday, May 20th, 2012

A Course was held last weekend in honour of Sensei Foster. It was held in High Wycombe and I was very proud to be asked to take part in the teaching during the weekend. There were numerous instructors all of whom had been closely connected to Sensei Foster over the years. We, at Yama Arashi were introduced to Sensei by Frank Burlingham many years ago and met with him regularly at the notorious “Big 3″ courses which he taught with Sensei Smith and Tom for many years. This carried on after Mr Smith and Tom passed away and continued under the new name of “The Lowestoft Course”. We were lucky enough to see him at our own dojo every year when he came to teach for us in October. It was a lovely weekend, catching up with old friends as well as meeting new ones.

My thanks to Paul Foster-Dent, to Janet Pain and those involved behind the scenes to make such an enjoyable event.
