We would like to thank JKA Italia for hosting the 2nd JKA Afro-Eurasia Championships and thank all of the organizers and support staff that went into making this another resounding success of a Championship. We would also like to thank each of the 18 countries that attended the Championships, all of the athletes, Team Managers and Coaches as well as all of the supporters from these countries and all of the referees and officials that helped to keep the 2 days running. This Championship is billed as a Friendly Championship and after the weekend we can certainly say that as one of our goals for these Championships then this was a sure fire success with everyone in the arena joining hands for an excellent rendition of “Auld Lang Syne” – showing the co-operation and friendship that all countries brought.
It was a perfect area for this type of Championship with plenty of things to do before and after the Championships for the teams and supporters in a very scenic area of Italy.
A sincere thank you to Mori Sensei ( JKA WF HQ Executive Director) , Naito Sensei, Kamino Sensei and Kawasoe Sensei for their presence and endorsement of these championships.

A little reminder of the great course in Windsor last weekend, considered by many to be one of the best so far. A good crowd of a few hundred participants enjoying the teachings of the fabuolous senseis Mori, Ueda and Kawasoe.. Reportedly a hard (as it should be) and high spirited, enjoyable course. Congratulations all round to participants and to all who passed their grading! All images and footage: courtesy of Bjørn Helge Bakke, Norway (Copyrights)
