This past Saturday January 24th 2012, together with my student Girik, we had the opportunity to travel to Oslo to meet with Paolo Castaneda and some of his students from Oslo Wutan. We had been invited by Paolo to come and meet some other Pachi Chuan practitioners from Finland and Sweeden, from the Baji Association. So we hopped into my car and took the 5 hour long drive into the capital, as soon as I was done with work. This is not the first time we have made this trip, so far it has been at least once a year. But it was going to be our first time to meet other practitioners of the Pachi Chuan style, from Europe.
After having picked up the guests from Gardemoen Airport, we headed to lunch. It was quit some weather we had that day, so going to Oslo's best place to get Vietnamese noodle soup, fell in approval by all. We then headed to Njårdhallen Sports Center, where we spent some three hours showing our different versions of our Pachi and other styles, as well as sharing and trying out different ideas.
The day ended in a well deserved Chinese dinner.
