An Eastbourne-based karate club, which practises the little-known style of Shorin-ryu, has had the honour and privilege of welcoming Arakaki Toshimitsu Sensei (10th Dan) from Okinawa to its dojo based at Christ Church Hall, Seaside.
This is the first time Arakaki Sensei has ever visited the UK, and for this special event, the Matsubayashi-Ryu Karate-Do club also welcomed and hosted karateka from as far afield as Australia and Europe, who travelled especially to attend the various seminars and training sessions.
To celebrate the end of the week, the club will be holding a demonstration of both traditional Okinawan Karate and English folk dance/music, in collaboration with the Hunters Moon Morris side. The special guest at the event will be the Mayor of Eastbourne, Councillor Janet Coles.
This free event, which will be held at the Assembly Rooms of the Town Hall on Saturday September 19 from 5pm – 6pm , is open to all.
