The 2009 AGM for Universal Shotokan Karate Union was held in March 2009 in Baguio City (6 hour’s by bus north of Manila). The AGM formalities took place at Riverview Water Park, Asin, Benguet, Philippines.
This successful AGM combined advanced training and a dan grading for local (Philippine) USKU members. The AGM proved to be a successful step in internationalising the participation in USKU and tightening the global network.
During this time in the Philippines substantial work was done for the production of USKU’s first ‘textbook’ covering Kihon, Heian Kata and Tekki Kata. The USKU textbook is only available to USKU members.
