JKS England Event: Yamaguchi Sensei visits Red Tiger
March 31, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm£15
Our Club has been chosen to host Takashi Yamaguchi Sensei 7th Dan; one of the most Senior Instructors from the JKS Hombu dojo in Tokyo, Japan. Yamaguchi Sensei is the Chief of the International Department and is a former World Kata and Kumite Champion.
It is the first time we have hosted a Japanese Sensei from the JKS Hombu dojo following our move to the JKS in September and we are looking forward to learning and improving our karate with one of the very best Instructors in the World. It is an honour to be asked to host Yamaguchi Sensei and we would hope that as many Red Tiger students will support this event as possible.
Yamaguchi Sensei has awe-inspiring karate and this event is not to be missed for any serious karateka. Most Red Tiger dojos will be closed on this night as our Instructor team will be training.
Sensei Paul, Sensei Rachael and Sensei Jonathan travelled to Leeds to train with Yamaguchi Sensei last year and both sessions were fantastic. He is a very energetic & creative Instructor and we had to work very hard. We came away awe-inspired with sweat-soaked gi’s and lots to work on.
We advise that you book your place early as this is a JKS National Event and students and Instructors from all other JKS England clubs are invited to attend. As it is a School night, we are running two sessions:
Session 1: 6.30pm-7.45pm is open to all ages and all grades – £15 per person

Parking and Information
We would suggest that you leave plenty of time for your journey as the roads & motorways around Bolton can be fairly busy in the evenings. The University Sports Hall can be found inside Bolton One on the 2nd floor. Do not use the main entrance for the Swimming Pool. Please use the Sport & Health side entrance which faces Aldi & Domino’s Pizza. The Manager has arranged for us to use the staff parking free of charge, this can be accessed off the A676 Deane Road (next to the Innovation Factory). However there are several pay & display car parks around the building if the staff car park becomes full. Please bring your license so that we can stamp your attendance. Red Tiger students must complete the booking form and return it to your Class Instructor with your payment. JKS members can post this form and a cheque to the address below. Tickets will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Thank you.
