Report from the General Secretary of IBSSA-ISF about the 10th Budo Day in Holland


For the 10th time the yearly Budo Day of the Wakai Ryu Aiki Jutsu group, affiliated with W.C.R. in Rhoon, was held in the Netherlands. This day, full of different martial arts, is always organised entirely for the benefit of charity. This year the amount of 1000.- Euro for MS (Multiple Sclerosis) Research Foundation was exceeded.

Despite the hot weather the attendance was high. Women and men trained from 13.00 to 17.00 hours during the various workshops. The day started with a surprise guest: Hans de Jong, 8. Dan Jiu Jutsu, from Australia, who spontaneously gave a workshop.
Shihan Nico Waerts – General Secretary of IBSSA - ISF (International Sport Federation), 5. Dan Kyokushin karate from Texel gave a workshop kyokushin all round, a mix from kyokushin karate, ju-jitsu and judo.



Cees de Jongh (IBA), 8. Dan Aiki Jutsu and Shihan of the Wakai Ryu group and Bart Hagen, 7. Dan Kyokushinkai Karate, completed the afternoon program. Martijn Bogaerts, 4. Dan Aiki Jutsu and MS patient gave lessons, too. He showed us that with right breathing techniques and little effort by using the strength of the opponent Aiki Jutsu is a beautiful sport to practice, even for MS patients. The day has been very successful despite the incredible high temperature in the dojo.



And of course, the day ended as all budo days: Eating! A delicious BBQ outside, especially in the shade…

For me it was also a reunion. It is nice to train and speak with colleagues all over the country and we had a lot of fun.

Compliments for the successful organization.
