We had a good time in Wadokai Winter Camp in Herrljunga. My thanks go to Shingo Ohgami sensei, the Swedish Wado karateka for all her work and kindness. It was great to see so many Wadokai karateka not only from Sweden, but also from many European countries.

It was an honor for me to be a member of the board of examiners for Dan grading on 02 December, 2017. Thank you for the trust.

Karate in Tokio 2016

Auch in diesem Jahr durften wir (Christian Christen, Helge Müller, Claus Morof und Gerhard Jauss) die Gastfreundschaft von JKF Wadokai und vieler Karateka im Großraum Tokio genießen.

Koichi Shimura Sensei (7. Dan JKF Wadokai) hat wie immer für einen vollen Trainingsplan in verschiedenen Dojos gesorgt. Das Training war intensiv und auf hohem technischem Niveau. Kihon, Kata und Kihon Kumite standen 2 bzw. 3 Wochen auf dem Plan. Wir wurden aufmerksam beobachtet und verbessert. Es gibt noch sehr viel zu lernen und zu üben! Daneben kam auch die gesellige Komponente durch gemeinsame Essen nach dem Training nicht zu kurz.

Am Sonntag (19. Sept.) hatten wir das Glück und die Ehre an einem Tagesseminar unter der Leitung von Hideho Takagi Sensei (8. Dan JKF Wadokai) teilnehmen zu können. Viele technische wie historische Erklärungen zum Wado Ryu und Detailverbesserungen durch hohe Repräsentanten des Wadokai in einer außergewöhnlichen Atmosphäre machten die Stunden zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis.

Nun stehen die drei letzten Trainingseinheiten in und um Tokio für uns an und dann heißt es am Samstag (24. Sept) schon wieder Sayonara und hoffentlich bis bald...
