The first trip to Norway was in April, 2011, to coincide with a K. Shayn seminar on the Budokon system of yogic, martial and living arts thanks to the help of Annet Kimberley, the official Budokon representative in Hareid. Norway, with its harsh beauty and mysterious Viking history provided an interesting setting for Budokon which captured the imagination of Yoga-Warriors Studios organizers. So much so, that, in May 2012, a return trip was arranged that combined training with exploring this fascinating country of low level fjords and towering mountains.
