Autumn Gasshuku 2018 with Shihan Chris Thompson 9th Dan

The executive of Club de Karate Washinkai España is pleased to announce the Autumn Gasshuku in Jávea. Please put the following dates in your calendar and watch this space for further details of location, eligibility and cost.

Friday 23rd November 2018 (Possibly Black Belt Dan Gradings only)

Saturday 24th November 2018 (There will be a morning session and afternoon session) Location to be confirmed.

Sunday 25th November 2018 (There may be a morning session, again this day is to be confirmed)

The training will be led by Washinkai Chief Instructor Shihan Chris Thompson 9th Dan. We encourage maximum attendance, as these events only take place twice a year in Spain. As always, it is a fantastic opportunity to learn from and meet the founder of Washinkai Karate, which is recognised by the World Karate Federation and the Japanese Karate Federation as well as the Valencian and Spanish Karate Federation.

Traditionally, Gasshuku means a period of intense martial arts training where students help each other and receive instruction from high-level Senseis.  All the club’s senior instructors will be in attendance including President Geovanny Sanchez Salazar 4th Dan and Sensei Sarah Lakin 4th Dan. There will be an opportunity to have lunch together on Saturday.

We cannot stress enough how important it is to the club that the Chief Instructor has an opportunity to see first-hand the work of all our students. Attendance to these events helps us maintain the high standard of karate we have become internationally recognised for in Spain.

There will be a book signing and an opportunity to purchase a DVD and other instructional items. Students will be presented with a certificate of attendance at the end, signed by Shihan Chris Thompson 9th Dan as well as the President of the Washinkai Spanish Club.
