2016 Sensei Hasegawa Visit to Whangarei - 18th April 2016
Training this year was open to all club members followed by Seniors and later concentrated on those students preparing for the NZ Open on the weekend. Having the open session offers the young and lower grades a taste of what the senior and competition students experience.
Open Club Training
In all previous visits, Sensei has concentrated on teaching two or three top Shitokai students. This year it was decided to have him teach all our senior Dan grades as well. All the Dan grades were "buzzing” after their experience, as Hasegawa Sensei introduced them to a level of Karate teaching which very few Karateka worldwide are exposed to. The remaining sessions being dedicated to our competitive students and our visiting students from Nouville Caledonie.
Dave Nuku, Matthew Baird, Yvette Hendrikse, Olivia Crum and Georgia Redfern along with our NC visitors Alicia Bezier, Angie Nondolini and Juliette Schmidt got to spend a lot of time with Sensei. These sessions are invaluable as the technical detail gets a lot of focus, Kihon and kata are refined. For myself, it was a good time to re-enforce my coaching and teaching skills, while everyone else were able to work on their competition kata.
Alicia, Angie and Juliette put a lot of work into their team kata Seienchin and bunkai. There bunkai was certainly a level up from what I have seen in previous NZ competitions so it will be interesting to see how they perform at the NZ open.
