INTERNATIONAL CIRCLE OF MASTERS
HONORS AND AWARDS CEREMONY

Canadian edition

The International Circle of Masters which is based in NJ. USA holds various awards ceremonies throughout the world. As travelling   became quite difficult for individuals from other Countries, the C.O.M. felt it more beneficial for members in various Countries to hold separate ceremonies.

For Canada this was held at the Personal Studio of Grandmaster Daniel Verkerke in Cambridge, Ontario Canada.

NOTE: There is only one person to receive an honor award for each category. The C.O.M. registers each award for the year.

We have provided a pictorial coverage below.

SEICHO JUTSU INSTITUTE

June 19th. 2002 Seminar

Grandmaster Dr. Dan R. Mc Eaddy
Founder Angelic Ninjutsu

----------------------------------------------------------

Seicho Jutsu Black Belts were treated to an excellent nights training under Grandmaster Dan  R. Mc Eaddy. After the class ended the Black Belt students remained for an evening of discussions on various topics concerning training in the Angelic system.

It is usually only once or twice a year that the Canadian Black Belts have a chance to train with GM. Mc Eaddy. Needles to say, they all take full advantage whenever the Grandmaster visits Canada.

All the students in attendance are personal students of GM. Daniel Verkerke

CIRCLE OF MASTERS - MY EXPERIENCES:
- by Lanore Woodruff

I felt honored that Grand Master Triplett invited his students of all levels to the Circle of Masters gathering this past month. I understand that usually only Masters attend these events, but Grand Master Triplett made a decisions to include his students which truly enhanced the feeling of the Academy being a family.

Personally, I was impressed and inspired by the demonstration that was delivered by the higher ranked students. It gave me a taste of what I can look forward to in my training, and showed me the talents of fellow students.

The speeches made by all of the Masters receiving awards were very encouraging and positive. They have worked so hard and accomplished so much, but each one is aware that with every accomplishment comes a new beginning. There is always more to come. I as particularly touched when James Glendenning received his certificate and plaque. He was so appreciative of the recognition the Circle of Masters were giving him.

One thing that has stayed with me from that day is something that Grand Master McEaddy said. It is something that I think is crucial to serious training. He said that,"It is dangerous to train in other systems before you master yours". This seems like an incredibly important thing to remember so as not to dilute the knowledge and skills that we are gaining here with Phoenix Ninpo Ryu. It is a point I will not forget.
