2020 Gashuku Update

The gashuku in Mossel Bay, taught by Kancho Rony and his team from Israel, is fast approaching and the gashuku committee requires some information to assist us with final arrangements.

Firstly, there will be two evening classes in Cape Town taught by Kancho in the week leading up to the gashuku (see the schedule below). Please indicate by return mail whether you will be attending these classes. The fee is R400 for brown belts & yudansha and R200 for white & green belts. These must be paid to the Committee and NOT to the Mossel Bay account.

The committee’s bank account detail is as follows:

Bank: Bidvest Bank
Clearing code: 462005
Account no: 3068803401

Secondly, we are considering arranging transport o Mossel Bay for Cape Town students, should there be enough interest. Unfortunately, we are not certain who will be going on gashuku, as all replies were made directly to sensei Kobus in Mossel Bay.

Please let us know by return mail (ct-gashuku.committee@karate-do.co.za) whether you are attending the gashuku and, if so, whether you would be interested in going as a group in shared transport. We are of the opinion that it might be a cost-saver, as well as a nice spirit and team-building opportunity.

Replies must please reach us by no later than 17 January 2020, in order for us to arrange the necessary.
