Karate Nerd Experience London 2016

We had a very special day today studying with Shihan Kousaku Yokota who taught some of the core principals of Asai ryu Budo Karate. Being one of only few direct students of Tetsuhiko Asai, he taught some incredible exercises for balance, mobility & flexibility, along with some very interesting, soft open-handed whipping techniques from White Crane. He also gave an insightful lecture on the modernization of karate in Japan during the 20th century, along with a great Q & A. We finished the day attending a presentation on increasing peak performance for athletes and coaches by a doctoral candidate finishing her PhD in Sports Psychology. Talk about a day packed with great information. I’ll sleep well tonight!!!

She’s taught Japanese at the University of Oklahoma as well as taught business professionals as well as lawyers and university professors privately for over 15 years. She now owns North Shore Japanese Language Education and Services in Beverly and offers her language and cultural education services to students.

We’re so excited to have her as our special guest this year at Summer Club! She will be teaching the kids a wide variety of Japanese topics including:

We can’t wait for our July and August session of Summer Club this year and certainly hope you can join us for these very special events. We still have a handful of openings in both sessions, so if you’re interested and not yet registered, please email us or let us know next time you’re in the dojo. Space is limited, and we expect the camp to fill up, so please don’t wait if you’d like to reserve a spot for your child. Have a wonderful day and we will see you soon!
