Tromsø Karate Club are well known for their strong traditions, and keeps the legacy of Kyokushin Karate alive. And this focus are only getting stronger with Shihan Shibata as the main instructor.
The camp brought the student through all aspect of Kyokushin Karate. Basic, Kata and Kumite, all systematical put together by Shihan. The atmosphere are always very good with Tromsø karate club and Shihan Jiyuu Shibata, so the hard work come easily.
The camp ended with examination, and 3 persons made the try to Shodan and two aiming for Ni Dan. Many was very impressed by one of the Shodan candidate, doing his test age above 60 years!
Shihan Jiyuu Shibata also brought two young students from Japan to the camp. This was a great inspiration – specially for all the young Karatekas in Norway!
