The YouTube video featured below is from Day Two—Lesson 3—from my May 2019 Seminar in New Zealand. The seminar was hosted by ‘International Karate Shotokan Christchurch’ and was a very small exclusive event.

I’d especially like to thank the head organizer Peter Burtenshaw Sensei, Matt Brew Sensei and the members of the club. Special mention of Troy Gutry and, indeed, Geoff and Jan!!!

Also special mention must go to Morgan Dilks Sensei who travelled down from Palmerston North, Shivam Patel who flew in from Auckland and Janine Krekel who travelled all the way from Frankfurt, Germany, to attend the seminar.

Lastly, congratulations to everyone who attempted exams. Pass or not pass, the experience is always what matters the most. The spirit of perseverance and resilience are high on the agenda of all true karateka and budoka in general.

Overall, I hope is that this brief video will act as a subtle reminder of some of the key points taught in the third session for all who attended. If you have time, please paste a comment! 

Please note: Many people from around Japan and around the world ask me to upload more videos! To answer these people... `Likes`,`shares`and/or `comments` literally motivate  me to post more.
