All the way to China travelled this time the instructor of "Yoshukan" dojo in Greece, George Pelekis for the purpose of attending seminars and championships.
The above seminars and championships are being realized every two years and are organized by the "Asian Pasific Shito ryu Karate do Federation" supported by World Shito Karate Federation (WSKF).
This year the event was dated on December 11-18, 2012 in Hong Kong of China, specifically in Kowloon district.
It has been a very interesting experience for the instructor because except the seminars he attended that included Kobudo, Kata, Bunkai, he also participated once more in a referee seminar conducted by his teacher, Con Kassis.
During the championship he acted as a referee as well, and he attended all the formal dinners as a representative of Greece, even though the country did not officially participated in the form of a delegation.
He also had the chance of meeting again with a lot of Masters of Shito ryu, since the entire SHITOKAI was there, like the President of W.S.K.F. Hiroshi Murata, the General Secretary Iwaki Hashimoto, Masters Hirofumi Mizuguchi, Genzo Iwata and others, that attended the event.
Among the teachers that conducted seminars were: Κenyu Mabuni, Katsuhiko Kawata and Kioshi Sakamoto.
