JKA Gasshuku with JKA Sohonbu Instructor Igarashi Sensei in Berlin Germany
It has been the great priviledge of JKA Shokukai Germany to welcome JKA Honbu instructor Igarashi Sensei for a two-day Gasshuku in Berlin from October 08 to 09, 2022.
Hosted by Shotokan Kyokai Berlin, 200 participants from all over Germany and Poland made their way to the German capital to practice under the guidance of Igarashi Sensei during his first Seminar in Europe.
Igarashi Sensei’s spirited and at the same time gracious instruction spurred the group to give their best and stay motivated through several demanding practice sessions. He put a special emphasis on Tachi Waza and the power that can be gained by combining the strength of the legs with superior balance. He pursued this theme throughout the weekend with a variety of challenging exercises.
