We had over 25 kids between the age of 4-13 from our Douglas and Mahon Branches grading, and all were successful. One student in particular, Cormac McCarthy Hann did extremely well receiving a double grade. Double Gradings are very rare and only awarded to exceptional students. This was the first visit to Ireland for Kancho Kanazawa’s youngest son Fumitoshi Kanazawa Sensei. Fumitoshi Kanazawa Sensei was the SKIF World Champion in 2006 and All-Japan SKIF Champion 7 times, the young students of Bushido Karate Club enjoyed the experience of the whole seminar and training alongside over a thousand of other young students from around the country throughout the whole seminar.
