Gasshuku originally meant something like “meeting at the inn”.  It was (and is) a chance for like-minded individuals to gather and share experiences, develop and/or strengthen friendships, enjoy good company, and practice together.  It is as much about camaraderie as about karate.
   Yamakura Shihan has agreed to hold a Gasshuku in the Toledo Ohio area in 2016. This event will be held during the month of September and will be open to the Brown (with instructor’s approval)  and Black belt members of the GKK.  Training will be Monday through Friday for 3 hours each day.
The final dates and location is yet to be determined. Please contact Mr. Ed Myers if interested.
