2012 Sensei Hasegawa Visit to Whangarei - 9th April 2012
We brought Hasegawa Sensei to Whangarei again for teaching. This was his eighth visit, and as always he was superb, his teaching and demonstrating ability continues to improve. This year he worked with Nicky Roberts and Alicia Bezier from our New Caledonia sister club. The knowledge he imparts is quite amazing, and the continuing improvement I see in Nicky during and after his visits is a joy to behold. As Sensei tells me, it is very important that he takes Nicky "a level up" each time he visits and he certainly does that.
Alicia Bezier, who has been training with me since early January this year also showed a huge improvement in her level, and this showed at the NZ Open in Christchurch after his teaching, where she won the Junior Women kata very convincingly.
On the relaxation side, Murray and Matt Burns took Sensei fishing, and this time with even worse results than last year, with absolutely no fish! However, hopefully he will have better luck next year!
We also took Sensei to the NZ Open for a day before he returned to Japan, and he saw Nicky win the Senior Women Kata most convincingly, showing the judges and audience her improvements from Sensei's teaching.
