About the Event

For those who have recently joined the W.K.K.A. Association, Kenji Kusano (known as “Soke Sensei” to his students) is the Head of the W.K.K.A. Association.  Each year, he travels all the way from Japan with a group of Japanese students to host a Gasshuku (Training Camp) in one of the European countries. This is a great opportunity to train directly with Soke Sensei and W.K.K.A. students from across the world.


It is with great honour that we are able to host the event in England this year. Soke Sensei will provide the finest teaching directly to all students and will be assisted by Takashi “Teppei” Kozuka (one of the most senior instructors in W.K.K.A.).


Everyone is welcome to attend, instructors, adults, children and families. This event is very unique to the W.K.K.A. Association and only comes to England once every 5 years, so don’t miss out!

Additional Information for European Students


There are various hotels available in the area of Wilmslow. Below is a list of those we recommend:



Transfers to / from Manchester Airport

Manchester Airport is the closest airport to Wilmslow Town Centre and has both train and tram links into Manchester city centre. We would recommend getting a taxi to your accommodation upon arrival which should take about 10 mins. There are now strict restrictions regarding collecting and dropping off passengers, so the easiest thing to do is to find the nearest taxi rank (following the signs) - price should be approximately £15 each way.
