【DOJO Report】Shorin-Ryu Kenshikai Sohombu DOJO

We visited Shorin-Ryu Kenshikai Sohombu dojo. Yoshimasa Kakazu sensei is Hanshi 9th Dan and Vice President of Federation of Okinawa karate, old martial arts. Though Kakazu sensei is 73 years old, he trains every morning and teach students by himself. 


When we visited Kenshikai DOJO, there is a class for kids. About 15 people include some adults participated in the class. From 19:00 to 20:30 they trained warm up exercise, base movement, Hit mitt and many Katas. They trained very hard, but seemed to be enjoying. Actually all students are very friendly and very close to each other. I heard Kakazu sensei has a BBQ party after grade test once in three month. I think this is one of the reason students enjoy their training very much and have good relationship.
