Between the 22nd and 24th April SKA black belts Senpai Paul and Senpai Leanne attended the JKA WF Gasshuku, this time held in the beautiful city of Windsor, south of London, U.K. Training sessions were held over 3 days under the instruction of Japanese instructors Sensei Mori Toshihiro 8th Dan JKA from Tokyo HQ, Sensei Nemoto Keisuke 5th Dan JKA HQ Instructor and All Japan Kumite Champion, and Sensei Kawasoe Masao 7th Dan JKA UK.
The Seminar was very well attended by Karatekas from all over the world amongst which were Scotland, England, Germany, Norway, Romania, Ireland, Iceland, Russia, France, Wales.
Karate knows no boundaries and true karate spirit surpasses notions of political barriers that attempt to hinder the continued perfection of character of the individual, moving away from the genuine path of the Dojo Kun.
SKA would like to thank the JKA WF Scotland group for the organisation of this event. We were very pleased to have reencountered old and new friends who have genuinely crossed our path in training over the past weekend and look forward to meeting again for more hard training very soon!
