The experience was very smooth, friendly and held well. Communication was fast and helpful, and considering I'm in a different country halfway around the world, the flute arrived quickly. It's a beautiful flute, well tuned and well made. Many thanks.

Zapata Sensei, Thank you for starting me on my journey through the martial arts. I am now fascinated by it. Thanks for your patience; your ability to share your martial art skills through teaching is exceptional. What I found special about your martial arts training is that it is done in the old way, with your mind, body, and heart working together. Thank you for passing down the information from a connection from you as a teacher to me as your student through your live, experiences, and personal histories. Domo arigato gosaimashita.

He empezado hace unos días el curso de nivel 1 de shakuhachi, y por el momento sólo tengo buenas palabras. El material que se proporciona es muy completo, y la asistencia en el proceso de compra ha sido inmejorable.
