Traditional Shotokan Karate around Cambridge

I was extremely lucky to have been able to visit Japan earlier this year and to train with the Japan Karate Association in Tokyo. Fortunatley, my ability to count to 10 in Japanese came in very useful, because I was instructed to count one of the Gyaku Zuki exercises!

The training and language was very familiar and I was fortunate to have been taught by one of the JKA Senior Masters.

I was unable to take any photographs of the training session, but here are some photographs of the JKA building, The Dojo and some other general photographs of Japan.

If you have the opportunity to visit this wonderful country and experience its peoples’ courtesy, please do so, it is a fantastic experience.
