Now THAT was a great event! The Ohan Brothers Gold Cup Tournament 2012 held in Laval, Quebec.

I just got back from there, and here are my cherished memories:

- Fantastic, and impressive competitors ( over 200 of them from different countries, and different styles)

- Training seminar with Shihan Klaus Rex. Wow.. I just have to say WOW! That was something else as he shared a taste of what training as an Uchi Deshi under Sosai was like...
