Shinkyokushin India had organized the 10th Winter Camp at Rishyap, Darjeeling (North Bengal) from 26th to 31st December, 2015.
Rishyap is a beautiful hill station and has a very nice natural environment for practicing.
Our sessions used to start at early morning 5:30 am at a chilling temperature of one degree Celsius. The morning session included meditation uphill running, stamina and strength workouts, basics practice. The idea was to acclimatize the body with nature.
Then the second session used to start from 11:30 where we practiced mainly katas and ido geiko.
Our third afternoon session used to start from 15:30 where we mainly focused on kumite techniques. Inter-active sessions were held in the evenings where both Practical and Theoretical Classes were taken.
Approx 100 Participants from all age groups participated in this Winter Camp. Our main aim was to inculcate the real Budo spirit in our students through hard training.
The camp was organized under the direct supervision of Shihan Shivaji Ganguly, Country Representative of India. The technical director of the camp was Sensei Shibayan Ganguly. Sensei Prabir Mondal and sensei Sauvik Chakraborty were the chief instructor and coordinator respectively.
