This year’s Washinkai Autumn Gasshuku was held at the Community Hall in Lydd, Kent, hosted by Chris Wateridge 5th Dan.
Members from Canons and Norwood in Surrey, Dover and Tenterden in Kent attended. As there was such a large training area, karate-ka were able to use the space to train easily without colliding. Shihan Chris Thompson covered a great variety of technique over the two day Gasshuku. All instructors trained with their students.
Senseis Neville Smith 7th Dan, Neil Benton 6th Dan, Roy Gould 6th Dan, Annette Turpin 6th Dan, Chris Wateridge 5th Dan, Calum Mendham 4th Dan and Peter Saunders 2nd Dan all attended.
Washinkai will hold the Winter Gasshuku at Lydd on Saturday 2nd to Sunday 3rd February 2019.
