** IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT **
We now have the first details of the Yamada Gishinkan Cup 2018 (Amagasaki City).
These prestigious visits to our Japanese Headquarters are a once-in-lifetime occasion and each year they grow bigger and better. It is a chance for us in the UK to train with Yamada Haruyoshi Sensei (10th Dan) and many other high ranking Japanese Sensei’s across several days and then having the honour to compete in the Gishinkan Yamada Cup that it hosted at this event.
There is even a chance to join Yamada Sensei for the arrival dinner and the Sayonara Dinner. It is at times like this when the top Sensei’s of our association become accessible. It is truly a very worthwhile and fulfilling experience. Many past attendees have talked a lot about the many friends they made at this event from other member countries. We are all part of a huge world wide Karate family.
** Please note **
This event always takes a great deal of organisation both here and in Japan. So, anyone thinking of going MUST contact Denis Casey Sensei in the first instance ASAP of possible numbers, including attendees such as partners & parents etc.
