This year's Cornell camp was led by Atsumi-Sensei along with the assistance of one of his students from Japan. Also Hagata-Sensei and Miyata-Sensei were assisting in teaching. About 50 kenshi from East and West coast of the US and Canada and from Japan took part in the camp. The emphasis of the training was on various implementations of the shape of Manji in different goho and juho techniques. The overall spirit of the camp was great even though the weather was not always cooperating.
