RIP SENSEI DON MORRISON 6th Dan

It is with great sadness and regret that we inform our members of the passing of Don Morrison Sensei 6th Dan WSKF. 
Sensei Don succumbed to COVID and after a spell in hospital passed away on January 23rd.

Seen here receiving his 6th Dan Certificate from Sensei Kasuya, Sensei Don’s Karate Career was marked by his continual search for perfection in his art.

Don began his Karate career in 1971, training in the Isshin Ryu style under Sensei Ticki Donovan. moving on to Kyokushinkai style before Joining the Thames Karate Association to practice Shotokan in 1976. Don developed his Karate under Sensei Enoeda in KUGB, Sensei Ohta in JKA England before joining WSKF to enjoy Sensei Kasuya’s approach to the art.

Sensei Don was a vigorous competitor, testing his Karate against other Karateka for over 20 years. He brought the same energy to his teaching, having established his own Dojo at Sydenham Hill later to move to Forest Hill as Seishin-Juku and his second Dojo at Chafford Hundred.

Sensei Don is remembered fondly by his students, friends and fellow competitors for his fighting spirit, intense training regime, his kindness and patience.

 May he rest in peace with his maker and in all our hearts.

Thank you Sensei

We had the honour to host a memorable seminar with Sensei Tomiko Mitsuoka 8th Dan, WSKF England Chief Instructor and Sensei Taro Kasuya 6th Dan from WSKF Honbu Dojo Japan.

There were two days of deep karate knowledge taught with passion, a passion that we hope will inspire all students and drive them to overcome themselves.

Karate starts with Kihon (Basics), a routine that is challenging but so important. It is the foundation you need towards a good Kata (Form). As consequence, a good quality Kumite will follow to complete the way.

Anything we learned, like a new technique or refining one we knew already, or about strategy and how to adapt it in different situations, are just a few things covered in the course.

Beyond all the above we found inspiration, motivation and a model to follow.

Looking forward to the next years Open Karate Seminar.
Until then, there is only one way: keep training!

Oss.
