****UPDATE 4 PLACES LEFT ON WEDNESDAY EVENING AND 3 PLACES LEFT ON THURSDAY EVENING****
We are delighted to announce that we have been asked by JKS England to host Koji Arimoto Sensei JKS Hombu Dojo Instructor and Former WKF World Kata Champion for 2 days next week!
We last hosted Arimoto Sensei back in 2016 and both courses were hugely enjoyable and sold out within days.
Arimoto Sensei is a karateka in his absolute prime, not only is he extraordinarily talented, he remains humble and is an imaginative and patient Instructor. His karate is unbelievably strong and powerful and seeing him in action is a must! He is really polite and respectful (as are all Hombu Instructors) and was happy to sign uniforms and have photo’s taken at his last visit.
He is a member of the current JKF (Japan Karate Federation) Kata Team (pictured on the left above with fellow JKF & JKS Member Moto Kazumasa) and has been travelling the World to compete and teach for many years.
We are hugely privileged to be able to host Arimoto Sensei once again and these courses are not to be missed.
If you don’t know or might have forgotten just how inspirational Koji Arimoto Sensei’s Karate is, here is a little reminder:
