Look forward - Japan August 2011
The IJKA are in the early stages of planning a trip to Japan in August 2011. I know it is eighteen months away, but it is worth considering sooner rather than later.
No details are known at the moment, but I would expect costs to be in the region of £2,500 per head, for the whole trip.
It is a life long ambition of many karateka to train at some stage along "the way" in Japan and these opportunities do not come along often. It is normal to fund a trip by a mix of sponsorship and personal contribution.
If any SSKC member is interested in training in Japan in August 2011 can you let me know soonest?
My feeling is that as a club we would need to consider our fundraising opportunities over the next 18 months. If we wait until the details are firmed up in 2011 it would leave little time to fund raise or save a significant personal contribution.
