KARATE SUMMER SCHOOL (PRIVATE LESSONS): I am now conducting a karate summer school for all grades, from complete beginner’s right through to advanced black belts. If you are interested you can contact me at: These private or small group lessons are separate to dojo training and can be booked on any day throughout December and January. They will cover skills specific for those who attend them and will provide a level of Shotokan karate tuition, which is inaccessible here in Canterbury. In saying that, these sessions are by no means exclusive for Shotokan practitioners, as they will be extremely beneficial for anyone who practices traditional Japanese Karate regardless of kyu or dan rank.

CHRISTCHURCH SHOTOKAN KARATE-DO TECHNICAL SEMINAR: On the 22nd and 23rd of January (Saturday & Sunday) there will be four traditional karate-do workshops. These are open seminars and will thoroughly cover a number of technical refinements, which will dramatically improve skills. Participants from around New Zealand are welcome, but due to the venue size, numbers will be limited. Again to book a place, or for more information, please email me at:
