Shohei-Ryu Karate Training with the Masters 2014

If you practice Uechi-Ryu or Shohei-Ryu karate in New England you likely know that my senseis, Ed and Jean DeCosta, owners of the Okinawan Karate Dojo are hosting a training camp on August 4 through 9, 2014, in celebration of the dojo’s 40th anniversary.  Congrats Ed and Jean!

Seminars will be during mornings and evenings this week.  Master Tsutomu Nakahodo, 10th dan, Master Toshio Higa, 10th dan and the President of Okikukai, and Asao Nakasone, 4th dan, kata champion in 2010, 2011 and 2012 of the Okikukai World Championship are the special invitees.  They will hold a special dan test at the end of the week followed by a farewell banquet.

I hope to see many of you in attendance.  Either way, check here for notes, pictures, and some of the training tips I gather throughout the week!

PS – I have been fortunate enough to train with Masters Nakahodo and Higa in the past.  Here’s a clip of Nakasone san performing Sanseiryu.  If you watch it, you’ll see why I’m so excited to meet him this week!

Lucky enough to grow up with the martial arts, I have felt their positive influence throughout my life and am especially interested in sharing these experiences with others. I enjoy working with youth and adults to give back some of what I've received. If you would like to learn more about Uechi-Ryu/Shohei-Ryu Karate, or if you want to find people to train with, please contact me. I am the head karate instructor for the Meriden Martial Arts Club.
