Commemoration of Hatakeyama Sensei

Written by Katsujinken November 3rd, 2013


On Sunday December 8th we will commemorate our Japanese teacher, Goro Hatakeyama Sensei, who died four years ago. There will be a special training in his honour from 13:00 until 16:00 – this means that we start an hour earlier than usual. Former students of his from other dojos are very welcome to join.
