UCC set to host WTKO Chief Instructor this weekend
UCC Karate Club is gearing up to host the first of three Autumn Seminars this weekend, bring world-class karate instructors to UCC students, and karateka from all over Ireland. Partnering with WTKO Cork, UCCKC will host Richard Amos Sensei, 7th Dan, at UCC’s Mardyke Pavilion for the weekend of October 7th and 8th.
Richard Sensei is the World Traditional Karate Organisation’s Chief Instructor, who is visiting Ireland from his home dojo in New York. He is a graduate of the 3-year instructor’s program of the JKA (only the 2nd Westerner ever to do so in its 50-year history). His previous visits to Ireland have been the highlights of UCCKC’s annual calendar, as students worked with karateka from across the region, and Ireland, to train in the insights and wealth of experience Richard Sensei brings to our shores.
This course follows on from UCCKC-WTKO Cork’s previous co-hosted seminars held in the NMCI, UCC’s Mardyke Pavilion, and UCC’s Mardyke Arena. where Sensei Amos’ in-depth knowledge and teaching on the fundamental principals of martial arts, and the biomechanics that underpin them, coupled with his wonderful style of teaching, were not to be missed.
