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.
This event has been postponed over the last couple of years due to the pandemic, however, the Gasshuku's are looking to restart in May 2022 in Stockholm, Sweden. 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 so don’t miss out!
The usual training schedule for the weekend is as follows:
1 - Friday (7pm - 9pm), followed by evening drinks with Soke Sensei (for instructors and senior grades)
2 - Saturday (10am - 4pm), followed by formal evening meal with Soke Sensei (called the Welcome Meal)
3 - Sunday (10am - 4pm), followed by a more causal evening meal with Soke Sensei (called the Goodbye Meal)
We will continue to update this page as we find out more information from the Swedish Gasshuku Organisation Team.
For now, we are currently just looking for an expression of interest, this is not to say that you are committing to going, it's purely so that we can pass onto the Sweden Gasshuku Team an idea of numbers, ages and grades of students who might attend.
