SUGAR LAND KARATE SCHOOL HOSTS

OKINAWA GOJU-RYU KARATE DO KYO KAI MASTERS SEMINAR

OCTOBER 14-16, 2011

Ramon Veras of the Traditional Karate Center in Sugar Land was host to Black Belts from all over the USA recently for a Karate seminar designed to hone skills and training techniques, as well as share new information and “secrets” of Karate-do.

Sensei Veras arranged for one of top Goju Ryu masters to share his knowledge and experience with the attendees. Master Masataka Muramatsu, Sensei 9th Dan, of Japan was the senior instructor for the event. Sensei Muramatsu brought his 47 years of training in Goju Ryu Karate to Houston for the 7th time. Attendance at this seminar was limited to ensure that everyone received focused attention. Black Belts visited from all over the country and were all treated to an intense dose of advanced Kata (forms) training as well as applications of Kata techniques (Bunkai).

The Seminar began with a six-hour workout on  focusing on exercise drills designed to warm-up, stretch and condition the body specifically for martial arts. The warm-up was followed by concentrated work on the Sanchin Kata and then some basic Kata training in preparation for the weekend.

Saturday was divided into two three-hour sessions beginning with basic Katas, gradually moving to more advanced ones as the day progressed. It was an intense and tiring day. Performed properly, a single Kata can be a workout. Repeating numerous ones up to 10 times can be physically draining. No one slacked off, however. A number of participants were preparing for Dan testing the following day so the incentive for hard work was ever present.

There was yet another session Sunday morning. It started with a review and then moved on to some preparation time for the pending test. At noon, all non-testing participants were bid farewell. Only those seeking rank advancement and the graders were allowed for the test.

The testing was a nice conclusion to the weekend seminar. The 14 hours of training and testing was exhausting, but worth every second. The information shared by the visiting Senseis Muramatsu as well as host Sensei, Ramon Veras, is invaluable to the continued training of the participants.

 

We congratulation to following dedicated students on their promotion to higher levels of black belts in Okinawa Goju-Ryu karate do in their pursuit of excellence.

La Liga Provincial de Karate de Coclé, Republica de Panamá en el ámbito de la búsqueda de ofrecer un deporte que se rige en fortificar la salud psíquica y física del individuo y disciplina y respecto por los demás.

Organizó en el los días 21 – 22 y 23 del mes de octubre 2011, un seminario internacional abierto a todos los estilos de arte marciales, en uno de los sitio de playa mas lindo de Panamá que se encuentra en el centro del país, en el Royal Decamerón Beach & Resort en la provincia de Coclé.

Agradecemos a quien ha sido el artífice y el enlace para poder realizar este evento, el Maestro Carlos E. Martínez Q.

El Maestro Martínez ha sido el precursor del Goju Ryu a Panamá y gracias a él ha sido sembrado en todo el territorio nacional, desde Chiriquí a Panamá, para llegar luego a Coclé donde actualmente es el Director Técnico Provincial de Goju Ryu en Aguadulce, Penonomé y La Pintada y es miembro de la directiva de la Federación Nacional de Karate (FEPAKA).

El evento fue dirigido por el Hanshi Masataka Muramatsu, 9º Dan Okinawa Goju-Ryu y JKF 8° Dan y JKF Goju Kai y asistido del Maestro Ramón Veras, Director Eishin Kai Goju-Ryu, 7° Dan Okinawa Goju-Ryu y JKF 6° Dan y JKF Goju Kai.

En el trascurso del seminario estos maestros han demostrado ser de gran nivel internacional y profesional.

En el tiempo pasado junto nos han demostrado de ser no solos grandes karatekas, pero también grandes hombres, este por su amabilidad, humanidad y por su carga positiva, han estado gotas rociadas que nos han alimentado día tras día, de técnica y sabiduría.

Unas grandísimas gracias, a los maestros y a alumnos que han participado y que nos han brindado su apoyo, desde Venezuela, Chiriquí, Coclé, La Chorrera y Ciudad de Panamá y en particular al presidente de la FEPAKA  Hanshi Luis. A. Pereira R. y al secretario Maestro Stravos Costarangos y a los miembros de la directiva nacional.

Éste ha sido el primer seminario en este estilo, hecho a Panamá, para implicar no sólo a los atletas pero también sus familias y nos ha dado un gran resultado positivo, confirmándonos aun mas, que ésta es la justa trayectoria, hoy día, para difundir una de las artes más fascinadoras y misteriosas del mundo, el Kárate.
