    A friend of mine used to study under him, and I once attended a two to three hour class in the garage, with about four others. I'm not certain what "deshi"
    is in this context, as something getting "done" however. Elaborate?

    Deshi means disciple in Japanese. The Deshi programs done by Hanshi are an intesive study of Kosho Principles and techniques done over the course of a weekend. They usually run all day Friday and Saturday and into the early afternoon. It's a bit more intense than a Seminar as the student body is limited to a smaller group size and is only comprised of serious students of the arts. Every night you are assigned home work as well.

    I went to Deshi 1 last May and it was awesome. The focus of Deshi was on discovering the similarities of the arts. We learnt quite a bit of Martial Arts history as well as Kosho history. It was cool to be able to ask Hanshi questions about his experiences with the late greats and even better to hear his stories as they are pretty funny. In addition to the History we further explored the similarities of martial movement by studying Kata, Iaido, Shodo, and Shiatsu.

    I'm also going to Deshi 2 at the end of this month. That's about strategy. I'm not sure what Deshi 3 is about.

    A couple of my friends went down to hanshi's for a week long deshi program a few years ago.
    They said it was a great experience and you really learn a lot from the thing.

    I can imagine. I wish I could go to a full week. I'll just have to settle for a few weekends. A number of teachers that I know have gone thru the same Deshi a few times. They say they still get alot more out of it.

    Hi,
    Years back hanshi would have a week long deshi. as he did them he found he could get more done and he was able to make it a 20 hr training
    camp. Fri - sun. Highly intense. with Home work.
    the information he puts out in the weekend is truly mind blowing.
    He would charge a fee of about 500.00 each person. back then...
    Now what he does is charge a set fee and let the school owners sell the cost to there students at a lower price say 200.00 each. and this helps more people be able to go and learn.
    I have gone to A few deshi programs and I feel are really worth the time and cost. He covers all areas of kosho and other martial arts.

    The books he gives out during the deshi are worth the price alone...
    my 2 cents

    Great reference. Strange if you read the material, you may find you know more about the history of an art more than someone who's practiced it for years.
