On Wednesday the 5th of July, the City of Chartres awarded Kamohara sensei, President of the World Shito-ryu Shukokai Karatedo Union and Chief-Instructor of Shito-ryu Shukokai Union France with a “medal of honour” of the city, as a gesture of saying “thank you” for his contribution to the city of Chartres in teaching Karate there for 40 years! The awarding was done due to Kamohara sensei’s departure from Chartres and moving back to Japan permanently!
For us, the members of the world Shito-ryu Shukokai Union, this isn’t a farewell, of course! It has been agreed with Kamohara sensei that he will visit Europe every year for seminars! At the same time, Kamohara sensei will strengthen our union’s presence and organization in Japan!
Kamohara sensei, thank you for your contribution and teachings!
