【FRANCE】 9th Edition JKA Christmas Camp – France
On Friday 14th, Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th
Organized by Dojos Yon & Vie De Karate ヨン生活空手道場, and supervised by JKA/WF France, this new edition was very popular with over 300 participants from 20 different countries and 3 continents. More than half were either instructors or assistant instructors but all grades benefited from the excellent teaching provided by the visiting sensei whose close attention to detail and accessibility pleased everyone.
Over three days, karate-ka trained in separate groups according to their level and worked with NAKA Tatsuya Sensei (Japan), KURIHARA Kazuaki Sensei (Japan) and Daniel LAUTIER Sensei (France). Studying and perfecting basics, working on kata and developing a feel for Kumite allowed each person to improve their technical level.
On Saturday morning an Instructors & Assistants course (more than 150 Karate-Ka) was led by NAKA Sensei in order to ensure that all work and teaching practices agree with the standards of the JKA/WF, but also to educate everyone in substantive work.
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 ヨン生活空手道場, their instructor Emmanuel ETIENNE and JKA/WF France would like to warmly thank all the participants in ninth JKA Christmas Camp as well as NAKA Tatsuya Sensei, KURIHARA Kazuaki Sensei and Daniel LAUTIER Sensei for their presence and the quality of their instruction.
