ISKA Virtual Gasshuku

International San Ten Karate Association (国際三天空手道協会 “Kokusai San Ten Karate-Dō Kyōkai”) Virtual Gasshuku on Saturday, 12th September, 2020 via Zoom.


The Covid-19 lockdowns have provided us all a challenge as we cope with altered routines, staying safe and healthy, and trying to remain optimistic despite the circumstances.

ISKA feel that this year’s circumstances, while not what we are used to, provides a very unique opportunity to bring together a group of instructors not limited by geography or the expense of travel. ISKA are extremely honoured to have special guest instructors Sensei Rick Hotton, Sensei Mina Yamazaki, and Sensei Steve Borkowsky join us for this special event. In addition, ISKA President, Sensei Rick Llewelyn will also present during this not-to-be-forgotten Virtual Gasshuku.
