was held evening training session as part of the program of camp.

Special guest instructor was Shihan Alexey Gorokhov

He is multiple times Champion of Russia, Champion form British Open, Champion from Japan in absolute weight category and many more tournaments since 1991 when he starts Kyokushin. Shihan is а very good teacher, explains nicely each exercise for what it would have help the fighter. He has a positive karate, his fighting carrier is very inspirational.

We’re sure that young karatekas have learned useful things and will apply them in training. His assistants were Senpais Stanislava Boycheva and Aleksandra Marinova, and Senpais Alexander and Ivan Komanovi. We thank Shihan Gorokhov for this training. Osu!

Other special training was with Shihan David Pickthall, because this was his last day with us. We are happy that Shihan David was with us this 3 training days.

After completing his career as a fighter, he fully devoted himself to the developed world of Kyokushin and to the development of the fighters as well as personalities. He always says, “I had my time, now it is yours.”

In the interview he talks about his start in karate, talk about Hanshi Steve Arneil, for Sosai Oyama and what valuable artifacts hi has.
