Over the weekend of May 18-20 I had the opportunity to travel to New York where I attended a technical training seminar hosted by Sensei Michael Buttermark’s TKC Dojo. The Traditional Karate Center is located on Staten Island with a saterlite branch in New Jersey.
The seminar was instructed by Shihan Ian McGarrity from Florida. Ian-shihan has 40+ years of experience in Karate-do, and came to the US after serving as Shibucho (Area Chief Instructor) of the United Kingdom for several years. After much work under Ian-Shihan and Michael-sensei, a Test was held and several students were promoted.
Thank you sensei Michael for your time and experience. Thank you Ian-Shihan for your trust in me and the wonderful lessons. Thank you Robert Sensei and family for hosting me. Thank you TJ sensei for your openess and support of my growth in Karate-Do.
I look forward to th next session.
