For all the Shihan’s who attended the historical first Shihan gathering, I made this fotoblog. We had a great time – it was nice to get to know the Shihans from all the different places of the world.
Seminar with the JKGA and Commemorative Ceremony and Party of Founder Gogen Yamaguchi Kaiso
In September 2009 there was a big gathering of the International Karate Do Goju Kai Association. That was the first time, when Saikoshihan Goshi Yamaguchi presented the Kô Ryu Kata in the public. We celebrated the Centennial of Founder Gogen Yamaguchi’s Birth in the Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku. Many of famous Masters from other Styles showed there respect to Saikoshihan with there attendance. Also many Shihans from the IKGA attended this celebration. The main purpose that I went to Japan that time was the historical event, when Kô Ryu has been shown for the first time by Saikoshihan to the public. A unforgetable moment.
