We are honored once again to welcome guest instructor Steve Ubl Sensei, 8th dan, Technical Director of the WTKO to teach a series of seminars on Friday, December 12th and Saturday December 13th at our Redwood City dojo.
Ubl Sensei has been doing karate since the 1960s with a dedication and intensity that few attain. He was a close student of the late JKA Chief Instructor Nakayama Masatoshi in the 1970s and the first resident of Nakayama Shihan’s Hoitsugan dojo in Tokyo. He completed the JKA Instructor Training in the U.S. under Nishiyama Sensei and became a full time instructor in his AAKF/ITKF organization. But for many years since then he has devoted much of his time to pursuing intense refinement and advancement of his own training.
Ubl Sensei is recognized worldwide for his incredible understanding of karate technique, his truly transcendent skill level, and his compassion as an instructor. We look forward to the opportunity to learn from him again this time.
The seminar schedule is as follows:
December 12th (Friday)
- 7:00-9:00 pm
December 13th (Saturday)
- 8:30-10:30 am
- 12:30-2:30 pm
Seminars are open to students of traditional Shotokan karate from any dojo in the area. Seminar content is often advanced, so participation is limited to adults and advanced children only.
Students who have had the opportunity to train with Ubl Sensei make it a point not to miss his classes. If you haven’t yet had the chance, you have to experience it, and you’ll come away with new challenges to keep you going for a long time.
