The Edmonton JKA is SUPER fortunate to have what could be a once-in-a-lifetime training opportunity with Shihan Yasuo Sakurai in November 2018.
Sakurai Sensei has been part of the JKA shihan-kai masters association for many years. He is a 6 time Japan National Masters Kata Champion, Chief instructor and examiner of Tokai area Japan, technical advisor to JKA-SKD Canada, chief instructor for JKA-BC for over 25 years, head coach of several Canadian National teams and several Provincial teams from 1980s to early 2000’s. He has had many of his Japanese students and several of his Canadian pupils compete and succeed at National and World level. He has become one of the most sought-after instructors of Karate in the World.
In addition, Canada’s very own Sensei Don Sharp will be also be teaching in Edmonton that weekend.
Most of our association is aware of Sensei Sharps exceptional JKA Career in competition and in instructors’ program. (World Cup Champion, 4 time JKA national Champion, 11 National JKA medals, 3 additional JKA World event finalists, and highest qualified JKA instructors’ course instructor in Canada).
