Special thanks must be given to Kaicho Hoosain Narker for travelling all the way from South Africa, Sensei Franco and his team, Main sponsor V-Zweeden, Mr. Hedwig from 'de Stadsring' dojo, all the camp participants and last but not least all the people around the scene who did the cooking, making arrangements and all other necessary things!

Friday after dinner the first training started with emphasis on Ashihara Real Fight Combat drills. The second training was a very nice 'middle in the night' training on the beach. Sabaki movements was trained under Moon light. Super!! The Saturday morning training was done in the dojo 'de Stadsring' Middelburg. This training existed of Ashihara Real Fighting techniques and tactics with defence against spontaneous attacks. This was well liked by the participants.  In the afternoon Kaicho Hoosain Narker gave an excellent outside training of high technical level. Kaicho taught the group great sabaki concepts.

The day concluded with a socialising BBQ. This is always a special event as it brings everyone closer to each other.

Sunday morning training was on the beach. This training started of practising Sabaki and ended with practicing the Jim Wagner knife defence rules. The afternoon training was on strike pad training drills including the 15 second drill and the boiler drills.

At the conclusion of the camp Kaicho Hoosain Narker promoted Sensei Franco to 2nd Dan. The promotion was done in recognition of Franco's life long dedication to karate and for his tremendous efforts to promote ashihara karate. Congratulations Osu!!

The camp finished with excellent Indonesian meals.

I hope to see all again next year!!
