Holidays….. #BJJ #JiuJitsu #Obon #Japan

I thought the numbers for class yesterday might have been a little lower than usual, due to the Obon festival which is will kick off sometime this month – this festival sees Tokyo residents flying the nest, back to their hometowns to spend quality time with their family, wherever that might be in Japan.

Truth be told though, we still had 8 or 10 people turn up which contributed to a good session – these numbers helped in no small part by the foreign guys who turned up (4 of us) – a little difficult for us to head back to our hometowns!

I wonder how many people will turn up for Saturday’s classes? As I was heading home tonight, Ikebukuro station was jammed with suitcase carrying salarymen, students and the odd foreigner, all seemingly heading out of Tokyo – As far as Saturday’s class is concerned, I’m hoping for the same numbers for Saturday!
