We started 2015 with a small demonstration at a local shopping centre, it was only for 15 minutes. 15 minutes to show what Kyokushin is all about is an almost imposable task. We demonstrated Kihon, ido keiko and then using focus mits to show some good power and energy using kicks and punches which seemed to impress the spectators and finally some tameshiwari. Even after all these years tameshiwari is still the most popular.

So the year has started for Gothenburg’s Karate Kai, let’s hope it’s a good one.
