I just want to confirm and welcome you to Black Belt Seminar starting in Cologne/Köln at Forum Kishintai,
Beethovenstrasse 16-18, next week Thursday 9th April.
The attendee list is below. Specifically, I want to welcome first time attendees from Hungary/New Zealand ( Keni ), Norway ( Eivind ), Canada ( Darren ),
the Linz-gang ( Benjamin, Mathias, Michael, Martin ), lonely-cowboy from Graz ( Willi ), Andreas from Karlsruhe, and, of course, Michael from Malta.
And all the spanish newcomers. I say this with a note that most of the newcomers to this seminar are teachers in their clubs. It is an honour.
Thursday: 18:00-18:45 registration – you are already registered, so just walk by, unless there are exceptional things.
And note that the Dojo has other classes until 19:00. Have respect.
Thursday: 19:00-20:30 ( Jörg )
Friday: 10:00-11:30 ( Cornelius )
Friday 17:00-18:30 ( Luis )
Saturday: 10:00-11:30 ( Pedro )
Saturday: 16:00-17:30 ( Matti )
Sunday: 10:00-11:30 ( Dirk )
Teachers may swap places, who knows?
Friday evening 19:00 Jörg has reserved tables for those who want to join at nearby Brauhaus Heller.
There may be time for a small get-together in the Dojo for music, before giving peace for the dojo-sleepers at about 22:00.
Saturday evening dinner is at the dojo. We get some little common food and drinks, but the idea is ( like last year )
that you bring something for yourself or for sharing, so we can keep the common costs down.
Saturday after the dinner, there will be the Non-Talent show. It is well-known that there are stupifying magicians, hold-your-breath tango dancers,
mimics, poem-readers that take your heart out, if you don’t watch it carefully. I mean the heart.
There is a competition also for most embarassing performance, where Jörg’s piano playing is so far the measure ( sorry, Jörg ).
We all hope for improvement this year. Pedro’s guitar-playing could beat that ( just a joke, Pedro ).
Cornelius will organise this mess somehow, like in the last years: sign-up with him to perform in the Show.
See you soon,
