Karate Guests from Chile

On January 16-17, 2016, my Okinawan Karate association: Shorin Ryu – Shorinkai, was visited by Mauricio Troncoso sensei and his students. They are coming from the Shorin Ryu, Kushinkai in Chile.

On January 16th morning, we practiced Karate at Giyu Gibo sensei`s dojo in Urasoe City. This was also my first visit to this place, and I have to say that it was a very beautiful dojo, and Gibo sensei (9th DAN) was such a humble and nice person to welcome us in his dojo, not to mention that he is a very skillful and great Karate master, despite his old age (78 years!).

On January 17th morning, the guests from Chile was invited to train in Shorinkai Honbu Dojo in Okinawa-shi. This dojo is managed by my sensei, Kakinohana sensei (9th DAN). This is the place I routinely visited for Karate practice for the past 5 years living in Okinawa. We had the privilege of watching the Kata demonstrations and Bunkai (applications) of various Karate techniques by the Chilean guests and Kakinohana sensei.
