Japanese spear-fencing in Germany/Europe

Already in August of 2020 Ichiya Junzō, the 21st Sōke of the Hōzōinryū, had changed the title of the headmaster of the school to Ryūha Daihyō (representative of the school). On September 26th 2020 he transferred the office to his successor Komakita Manabu. The Hamburg dojo thanks Ichiya Sensei for everything he did for the school and the new representative for taking over and taking on the responsibility of leading the school into the future.
