Grading : Gojuryu Karate do Seiwakai JAPAN Test Results 2012
Posted by glenn on 2012/8/5 9:00:00 (2526 reads)

It was an interesting trip to Japan this year and I thank all that supported me on this trip. I still found it hard to go to Japan and not see Shuji Tasaki Hanshi in Tokyo. Although as promised Lesley and I visited Mrs Tasaki, Shuji Tasaki Hanshi's wife at her flower shop, although this was a tear jerking experience, from all of us I was glad that we did go and see her. Thank you Michael Patrick Shihan, Nikola Vukelic Sensei, Iyan Mackenzie Shihan, Naomi Higgs Sempai for thier support through the entire trip. After this we went back to the station and on to Omagari where my friends from England Joanne and Amanda met us, meeting strait away no time to settle. After all that time to catch up with old friends.

Day 1 started off as usual, unfortunately we had to head back to hotel so missed first session. Then back into it after lunch with my training buddy Stacey to my right and supporters Michael,Fareed, Iyan and Nikola close by. We all worked hard for three days and on the forth was the first Gojuryu Karate do Seiwakai International tournament where most of the places were taken by Australians, well done by all. I was lucky to see both Stacey 1st, Rod 2nd in a hard contested final I took the bronze.
After 6 days of rigorous training the Grading was held with Leo Lipinski Shihan and Seiichi Fujiwara Hanshi the examiners.

A congratulations to all that passed.
