The 2011 IKO Iran Blackbelt Conference

CIMG0075a.jpgThe 2011 IKO All Iran Blackbelt Conference was held in Tehran on Sep 21, 22 & 23, organized by Iranian Branch Chief, Shihan Seyd Mohammadi. Approximately 200 IKO Iranian members participated in this event, led by Shihan Katsuhito Gorai. It has been 15 years since Kancho Matsui and Shihan Gorai visited Iran. Kihon, Ido, Kata, Bunkai, and fighting techniques were covered. Iranian members were so enthusiastic to make the most of this rare opportunity to learn as mush as possible. An all Iranian Branch Chief Meeting was held to discuss future event planning and increase unity among branch chiefs so as to further develop Kyokushin Karate. After completion of the camp, one extra session was held at Shihan Mohammadi's Tehran Dojo on Sep 24, dedicated to the late, Shihan Bobby Lowe. A moment of silence was observed before the training, followed by Tekki Kata & self-defense techniques. Osu!
