News: Karate New Zealand Gasshuku in Dunedin
posted: December 2009

In December, Shihan May assisted by Sensei Thanasi Balaphas and Sensei Karin Tempelhoff, conducted a gasshuku at our Milton dojo.

This was very well attended and a very good standard was achieved. During the Gasshuku all the members did 1100 press-ups!!! and were encouraged by Shihan to always push themselves even harder.
