【FRANCE】JKA CHRISTMAS CAMP – 10th Edition – France
On Friday 09, Saturday 10 and Sunday11 December 2022 the tenth JKA Christmas Camp, a French international training course and grading, took place in La Roche-sur-Yon (France).
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 320 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 Shihan (Japan), OGANE Yutaro Sensei (Japan) and Daniel LAUTIER Shihan (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 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 ETIENE and JKA/WF France would like to warmly thank all the participants in tenth JKA Christmas Camp as well as NAKA Tatsuya Shihan, OGANE Yutaro Sensei and Daniel LAUTIER Shihan for their presence and the quality of their instruction.
