The 6th Winter camp of WKB HELLAS took place in the beautiful mountainous place of Elati in Greece during the 27-29 of January, 2017. Once again , we had the honour to host the President of WKB, Hanshi Pedro Roiz . Thus, the athletes had the opportunity to practise with such an exceptional master of karate as is Hanshi Pedro Roiz.
Summary of the seminar :
The three-day course was conducted by the basic trainers: Hanshi Pedro Roiz (8 dan), Sensei Papapoulios Ioannis (4 dan) and the coaches: Sensei Leonidas Adonis 4 dan, Georgios Robos 3 dan and Senpai Kostas Ioannidis. The seminar attended by many students , both junior and seniors from the dojos of: Kalabaka , Almiros Volos , N.Agxialos Volos, N.Smirni Athens and Amintaio, Florina.
Trainings were held in two places. Both in exterior places in nature and indoor as well. The exterior trainings were a real challenge as the weather conditions were extremeny freezing cold with low temperatures below 0. The most impressive highlight of the event was that Hanshi asked the athletes to take their trainers off and continued to train barefoot on the snow.
During the seminar, There was a general training session, open to all levels, included traditional kyokushin – kihon – kata, knock down techniques, Budokai techniques as well as a program full of dynamic cardio exercises for the strengthening and endurance of the athletes. The seminar included also masterclass sessions designed for the most advanced students and coaches. The first and the last day contained two training sessions and the second day three training sessions. Furthermore, the interior trainings lasted for more than three hours each.
The Branch Chief and conductor of the seminar Sensei Papapoulios Ioannis 4 dan would like to congratulate all the participants attended the event. Especially, wants to express his gratitude towards Hanshi Pedro Roiz for his overall support and assistance in the development of WKB HELLAS. Moreover, he wants to thank all his athletes for their hard work and persistence and their families as well for their support.
It was a prestigious course with a great success and we are looking forward to our next big summer camp WKB HELLAS now in summer.
