Fabio and Alexia visit from Paris

Over the weekend Fabio and Alexia from Paris, France, came to Oita City for training with me. They practiced intensively for six hours over two days and we also enjoyed nice times outside of the dojo.

Both the classical Shotokan style kata combined with Asai Sensei’s kata—were used as a base—to deeply enhance their Kihon and Jissen-Kumite (Real Fighting) application: namely, to better 'physically understand Karate as Bujutsu'.
Overall, Fabio and Alexia did extremely well and will certainly return home to France with a lot of new knowledge to work on and share. I wish them both the very best in their ongoing karate development and for their remaining time here in Japan. Osu, Andre.
