Joint UCC-WTKO Cork Autumn course with Richard Amos Sensei 7/10/2017

‌‌P‌artnering with WTKO Cork, UCC Karate club is again proud to host Richard Amos Sensei, 7th dan, at the UCC’s Mardyke Pavilion for the weekend on October 7th and 8th, 2017.

‌‌This is a fantastic opportunity to train with an excellent ‌‌‌instructor who graduated from the infamous 3-year instructor’s program of the JKA (only the 2nd Westerner ever to do so in its 50-year history). Richard Sensei is the chief instructor of the World Traditional Karate Organization, heading its instructor program, headquartered in New York. This course builds upon UCCKC-WTKO Cork’s previous co-hosted seminars held in the NMCI, and UCC’s Mardyke Pavilion, where Richard Senesi’s in-depth knowledge and teaching on ‌the fundamental principals of martial arts, body connectivity, and the biomechanics underpinning karate, were not to be missed.

As with all UCCKC events, this seminar is open to all interested karateka, regardless of organizational affiliation. Please let us know if you wish to attend via a quick email so we can keep an eye on it! Alternatively let us know via the event page on Event page on Facebook.


‌‌‌The course will be held in UCC Mardyke Pavilion (UCC’s Mardyke Sports Grounds). ‌See this map for directions.
