Our favorite place to shop for Japanese made shakuhachi in the USA, japanshakuhachi.com is now also the online home for the newest teacher in Mujuan shakuhachi family. From his website, David informs us:
Shakuhachi Grand Master Kurahashi Yodo II (Kurahashi Yoshio) asked David Yūdo Sawyer to form the second of only two Mujuan dojo branches outside of Japan, the other being the Texas branch under Stan Kakudo Richardson. Mujuan dojo originated with Kurahashi's father, Yodo in Kyoto.The lineage goes all the way back to the 1930's and originates with the historical shakuhachi player Jin Nyodo, who amassed a very special collection of old honkyoku solo pieces from all over Japan.
David is offering in-person lessons in Louisville, Colorado and one-to-one lessons via the Internet.
