Edinburgh J.K.A. Scottish Summer Camp 2012

Fr. L.: Taylor sensei, Naito sensei, Mori sensei, Kawasoe sensei

This year was fantastic, the head of the JKA, Managing Director Sensei Mori attended along with Sensei Naito and Sensei Kawasoe.

The course was attended by over 200 students over three days, mostly brown and black belts with a smaller number of mixed kyu grades.

Mori sensei

Sensei Mori was in his element, teaching kumite with the basics needed to succeed in this part of training, teaching at a level all could follow. On Friday he taught the first hour on this subject, then the classes were split with Naito and Kawasoe sensei’s teaching Kata and Kihon for the rest of training.

Saturday and Sunday followed a similar pattern and was really well structured, Naito was his dynamic self and Kawasoe sensei showed how true JKA Shotokan Karate should be taught and performed. Gradings for kyu and Dan took place on Saturday with exactly 100 students trying for various levels of black belt, this is one of the largest grading ever, a credit to the organisation  of the “Kawasoe Group”.

After the gradings there was a great party held in the Campus with live “X- factor”-people singing as part of the entertainment. We have had great feedback and everyone really enjoyed the training, so keep looking on this site, or better still, sign up and receive notification of all new posting on the site as we still have a fabulous calendar of events to come this year and next. Tell your friends to have a look at what we do, to see if they would like to be part of this great “Group”.    Our thanks to all the JKA Instructors and thanks to all the students who came along to this Summer Camp 2012.Look for details of next years events.
