2016 JKF Gojukai Seminars , Grading and Tournament

The 2016 JKF Gojukai seminar was held in Brisbane on the 8,9 and 10th April
Brilliant seminar with some of Japans Highest ranked masters Saito, Fushimi, Fujiwara, Tada and Ishida.
As all ways a good time was had by all and as usual high quality instruction after two days of intense training grading was held late Saturday afternoon.
Where Vee Seckin graded to JKF Gojukai 3rd Dan, David Schlesinger to JKF GojuKai 1st Dan and on a personal note I was promoted to the rank of 5th Dan Shihan.

David Schlesinger represented our club well and contested the over forties kumite and won first place convincingly against some very tough opposition. He also came second in the male open kumite against much younger competitors with some strong goju versus sports karate.
Dave also place 2nd overall in open black belt kata.
