Andre Bertel Shotokan Seminar Christchurch, December 2011

Last weekend I was fortunate to attend a weekend of Shotokan karate hosted by Andre Bertel sensei.

The weekend focused on Technical elements of Asai-ha Shotokan-ryu Karatedo, and included drills focusing on fluidity of movement and balance work. We were also taught Kashu kata. The seminar was a great end to a big 2011, and all attendees walked away with a big level up (and lots to work on).
