KARMA KAZE: Open Air Psy Trance Free Party in Nishinomiya, Hyogo Prefecture

I participated in Karma Kaze free party in Nishinomiya yesterday. When 
I danced with Goa Trance, Ki or internal energy flowed smoothly. 
Strange shaped clouds over me looked like the view of outer space at 
the most far away. The panoramic view of Rokkosan mountains was great 
enough. I performed Suparinpe near the river. Just in front of me a 
fish jumped out of water several times. At night I got on the bicycle 
and ran along the large river. I stopped the bicycle and performed 
Tensho in the darkness just beside the river.

Once I asked my teacher, Fukumoto Sensei, "What is the secret of karate?" He immediately replied to my question, "It is Junbi Undo."

No ninja in Osaka Castle now

Sorry but in fact no ninja in Osaka Castle now. The building behind me is a part of Osaka Castle. It is a turret called "Rokuban Yagura" in Japanese. Unfortunately you cannot see the castle tower in the video, so I added the photo.

Boompsy’s Free Goa Trance Party at Suminoe Peace

Mr. Boompsy held a 50-hour free party at his club, Suminoe Peace in 
Osaka, Japan. I attended the pary both 18th and 19th September but 
only daytime. A lot of DJs played Goa trance music at the party. My 
favorite DJs are Miiiii-bou, Happy and Boompsy. I was dancing with 
cloud hands of Tai Chi in the sea of music. I became acquainted with 
Mr. Ikkyu who was almost same generation as me. I was also happy to 
shake hands with famous DJ Miiiii-bou.

Goa-Psy Trance Party at Suminoe Peace

Last Sunday, 21st August 2016, I participated in the party at Suminoe 
Peace in Osaka. I had a chance to have chat with Mr. Bunsai, the owner 
of the club, and DJ Hiroto when I was eating curry and rice at the 
second floor. I was dancing at the first floor for about four hours. 
The trance music is excellent, especially DJ Hiroto and DJ Happy.

Cross Feet Stance of Sepai

When we perform Sepai Kata, at the nealy last part of it, we stand at "cross feet" stance then step backwards pulling both hands. It is one of the different points from the so-called Shitei Kata or the compulsory Kata.

KARMA KAZE: Open Air Psy Trance Free Party in Nishinomiya, Hyogo Prefecture

The psychedelic trance party named Karma Kaze was held yesterday at 
Nishinomiya harbour. It was a very hot day. We danced under the sun, 
so sometimes a fellow dancer sprinkled cold water at us to reduce 
the heat. I was dancing with smoking Indonesian clove cigarettes 
Gudang Garam. I also rode on a broken mountain bike and ran along 
the river. I found a bamboo pole at the river side and practiced Bo

24 HOURS SUPER LONG SET by DJ Fullmoon Mondo at Club Neo

On Sunday, 19th June, I went to Club Neo in Shinsaibashi, Osaka. 
Regrettably the club is to be closed next month. Today DJ Fullmoon 
Mondo was playing a 24-hour set. When I opened the door, he was just 
playing Jungle music. I ate Butaman or Bakpao (= steamed buns) and 
drank a canned beer. Music changed to psytrance, so I started dancing 
at the floor. Dancing with Goa trance music is something like a moving 
meditation. It is same as performing Tai Chi. It is also like swimming 
in the beautiful sea. Anyway I was so happy at Club Neo. Thank you 
very much, DJ Fullmoon Mondo!
