Morgan Sensei, Brad, Paul and Steve from Aotearoa - New Zealand
Morgan Dilks Sensei from Palmerston North, New Zealand, came with three of his students: Brad Stevens, Paul Mangin and Steve Brown.
The training was focused on a significant number of key points of Kihon underpinning karate as bujutsu; furthermore, this was furthered by practical oyo (applications), which was the requested focus. Primarily sequences from Enpi kata were analyzed—in context with iriguchiwaza, also kihon ukewaza, freestyle and foundational unsoku (footwork) and so on.
Overall, as always, it was super to be with Morgan: both in and out of the dojo. Also it was awesome to catch up with Brad, and forge new friendships with Paul and Steven. All the best guys for your remaining time here in Japan. We wish you a safe and fun journey home to Aotearoa New Zealand. Osu, André
