【TAIWAN】 8th Gasshuku in Taipei with Katsutoshi Shiina Sensei
We are pleased to announce that 8th Taiwan Gasshuku in Taipei was held on 15th and 16th in December, 2018. Gasshuku in Taiwan is held twice a year from 2015, in Taipei, Taoyuan, Taichung and Kaohsiung.
The first day of Gasshuku, 20 of black belt participated and had hard practice with Kihon, Kata and Kumite under the instruction of Shiina Sensei. Shiina Sensei showed and explained us how to practice Kata such as Bassai-Dai, Jyutte, Enppi and Jion. We could study the meaning of each Kata’s action. Kumite training was very powerful and impressive. We could have confidence through this training.
The second day, 35 of black belt participated and had hard practice with Kihon, Kata and Kumite the same as the first day. Shiina Sensei showed and explained us how to practice Kata such as Hangetsu, kanku-syo and Gankaku. Kumite training on the second day included preparation for Dan examination. After Kumite training, we had Dan examination from 1st Dan to 4th Dan, and 11 parson passed.
Result was as follows,
1st Dan : 6, 2nd Dan : 3, 3rd Dan : 1, 4thDan : 1
We could finish 8th Gasshuku successfully. Thank you very much Shiina Sensei and all of participant.
JKA Taiwan will hold 9th Gassuku in Taoyuan in June, 2019.
I am looking forward to seeing you in Taoyuan.
