Keeping Traditional Shotokan Karate Alive in Christchurch-City, New Zealand.

Some photos from today's four hour practice with instructor Lyall Stone (4th Dan).

The training comprised of impact work, kata (Wankan, the Junro series and Chinte) and the essential kihon oyo-kumite. These practices are crucial for the development of Shotokan Karate in Christchurch City, and the South Island of New Zealand in general, as they result in improved instruction/training methods. We invite everyone who is serious about studying authentic Shotokan to attend the open trainings at the Christchurch Shotokan Karate Club: As this club is  the only group in the South Island providing international class Shotokan tuition.
