JKS Summer Course - Nottingham 23rd/24th July 2016

On the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of July, JKS England proudly hosted the all grades annual summer course in Nottingham.

An ever increasing attendance meant a record number of students enjoyed two hot days of physically testing and thoughtful instruction. Alan Campbell-Head of JKS England introduced the instructors for the weekend as Matt Price and Steve Carless Sensei, who were to be joined by a very special karate-ka from the JKS Hombu Dojo (headquarters) in Tokyo, Saori Okamoto Sensei.
Recently victorious in kata at the 2016 JKS All-Japan Karate Championships, Okamoto Sensei was a very welcome addition to the instruction team. Having had both huge success in her competitive career, as well as gaining the undoubted appreciation of all lucky enough to train with her, Okamoto Sensei was a huge hit with everyone involved right from the start.
The course fees were fully funded by SSKC's Member and Instructor funds.
