“Arrivederci (Goodbye) Roma 👍🏼
The Italian Gasshuku and A beautiful long weekend has come to an end and now it’s time for digesting all the impressions and all the lovely food 😊
It was a true pleasure teaching and sharing our beautiful art of Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate with such a dedicated and focused group of Italian students + all of you coming from Russia, Georgia, Bulgaria, Romania and Denmark.
Thank you Nakamura Sensei for your inspiring teaching and long friendship and Paolo Sensei for being the best host ever organizing a great gasshuku and taking so good care of Michaela and I together with Nakamura Sensei this weekend!
As always I met a lot of old friends and new friends who have joined our IOGKF family.
Remember time spent with good friends or doing something you really like is time spent wisely… we only have this life and every moment spent is a part of your life that is gone… ‘Time is Life’!”
