Completes Masters Program
JKA Bahrain instructors returned back from Cairo on Wednesday evening successfully completing the Japan Karate Association Masters Camp
07/12/07 through 12/12/07. The camp was organized by Japan Karate Association
and the Egyptian Karate Federation. The camp hosted Masters from Japan,
Masaaki Ueki, Tatsuya Naka, and Hideki Okamoto. These Masters are senior instructors
at Japan Karate Association Tokyo Head Quarters. The aim of the camp is to provide
Karate instructors in the Middleast, Africa, and the Gulf with the latest update in JKA Karate techniques which could be passed
down to their students.
Several senior instructors from JKA branches
around the Middleast, Africa, the Gulf and Cyprus
attended the Camp totaling over 400 senior black belts. The Camp was held for
five days focusing on Kata & Kumite improvements, power delivery, dynamic movement, energy circulation, and self-defense. The Masters from Japan
also conducted special sessions on preparing instructors on qualifications for judging and refereeing for competitions, as
well as, JKA belt examination qualifications.
