8th until 10th December 2017


On Friday 8th, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December 2017 the eighth JKA Christmas Camp – an international training course – took place in Paris (France).

As for karate, over three-quarters of the 200 participants were either instructors or assistant instructors but all grades benefited from the excellent teaching provided by Naka sensei whose close attention to detail and accessibility pleased everyone.

Over three days, karate-ka trained in one group, studying and perfecting basics, working on kata and developing a feel for kumite allowed each person to improve their technical level.

On Friday evening a private class led by Naka sensei in order to ensure that all work and teaching practices agrees with the standards of the JKA WF, but also to educate everyone in substantive work.

The JKA Christmas Camp organizers (Dojos Yon & Vie de Karate and JKA Paris supervised by JKA/WF France) had the pleasure of welcoming karate-ka from all over France as well as from abroad including Algeria, Belgium, Bulgaria, England, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Romania, Russia, Singapore and Switzerland.

As well as the excellent teaching, the Saturday evening party was another of the catalysts providing the opportunity for everyone to develop and reinforce existing links between JKA members all over the world.

The ‘Dojos Yon & Vie de Karate’, their instructor Emmanuel Etienne, JKA Paris and JKA/WF France would like to warmly thank all the participants in our eighth JKA Christmas Camp as well as Naka Tatsuya sensei for his presence and the quality of his instruction.
