沖 縄 空 手 古 武 道
South America, August 2018.
After the “2016 OIKKA World Karate Championship, Allentown, New Jersey” (check the article here), Diego Sensei moved and settled definitively in Northern Europe, where he successfully carried out the work of representing Seishinkan, establishing connections, contributing to the growth of Isshinryu and initiating his training in Tokushinryu Kobudo of Master Kensho Tokumura in the organization led in europe by Sensei Lars Andersen.
As a result of this joint effort between the WUIKA organizations in Europe and South America, activities such as the past “WORLD UNITED ISSHINRYU KARATE ASSOCIATION & TOKUSHINRYU KOBUDO EUROPE TOUR – ROMANIA 2017” (check the article here) have been developed, and this August 2018, after their participation together to the team at the 1st Okinawa World Championship, Diego sensei will be visiting the Seishinkan Hombu Dojo in Chile to conduct a seminar whose main objective will be to review the basic principles of Okinawan Karate and Kobudo, with a new perspective that goes in support of the work of growth and consolidation carried out by the directors of WUIKA South America & Seishinkan in the region.
This activity is presented as a prelude to the great event called “1st TOKUSHINRYU & WUIKA EUROPE SOUTH AMERICA TOUR – CHILE 2018 – 2019″ (click here for further info) scheduled for the end of this year and that will include a new visit of Diego sensei with two students of WUIKA Europe, who during a month, will be part of a series of trainings and seminars carried out in different dojos of the organization in the country.
Some of the topics of this coming seminar will be oriented towards the following areas
- Basic technical principles: stances, attacks, blocks.
- Chinkuchi (チンクチ), Gamaku, Meotode/Mefutode (夫 妻 手).
- Isshinryu Karate & Kobudo Kata.
- Basic principles of the main Kobudo weapons (tichu, sai, bo, tekko, tonfa)
Seishinkan Budo School & WUIKA’s board of directors hopes that with the realization of this event as a prelude to the end of year tour, our students and all the Okinawan Karate & Kobudo enthusiasts can gather, build connections and deepen their knowledge together with expanding horizons regarding the practice and development of this art in its purest and most traditional form.
We are looking forward to meeting you all during this coming events.
