Christchurch Seminar 2013: Video & Pics

Lyall Stone Sensei (JKA Christchurch) and Mark Waters Sensei (JKA Auckland) duelling with great "kihaku"
Here are some pictures and a video from my seminar held in Christchurch (New Zealand) on the 27th and 28th of July, 2013. Please scroll down to the bottom of the page for the video. The entire course was hosted and sponsored by Lyall Stone Sensei–chief instructor of JKA Christchurch. I really appreciate Lyall Sensei for this, the members of JKA Christchurch and those who travelled to attend this seminar; moreover, I hope it was beneficial for your karate-do. For those who attended, please post some comments on youtube video if you want.
