【PHILIPPINES】 Dan Grading and Qualification Test on 15th September, 2018
We have held Dan Grading and Qualification Test on 15th September, 2018 in Sebu, Philippine, and JKA Philippine National Championship on 16th September.
For the test, we invited Omura Fujikiyo Sensei who is an international director of JKA and lives in Thailand, and Ochi Sensei. Instructors of Osaka Daito Branch joined as well.
More than 100 people attended the seminar inclusive of 70 examinees. The seminar for the test was conducted in the morning and correct Kihon usage and some points of Kata were instructed. After that the tests were conducted. The level of examinees was relatively high and Omura sensei commented that it was remarkable. Such good results are achieved by the continued day-to-day effort of 10 members who trained in the Daito branch, instructors, late Iwabuchi Hiroshi Shihan and all of you who came to instruct many times. We deeply thank you all.
The Championship held on the next day was also completed successfully. All players, from children to adults, played enthusiastically.
Last but not least, we would like to appreciate Senior Director Ogura of HQ and all other related people who provided great support to hold this Test.
We all of JKA-NKK-PI members will devote our continued effort as possible and corporate closely to expand JKA.
Thank you very much.
