15 years Ryûkyû Kobudô Tesshinkan Kyô Kai – Tesshinkan World Gasshuku 2014

On the 22nd of May in 1999 Tamayose Hidemi Sensei founded the organisation “Ryûkyû Kobudô Tesshinkan Kyô Kai”. On occasion of this event he had previously asked the team around Frank Pelny to host the official festivities of our organisation in Nordhausen (GER). The people from Nordhausen have put a lot of effort in staging such an event – and succeeded. For this reason nearly 50 enthusiasts from Belarus, Russia, the Czech Republic, Japan and Germany have met in Nordhausen from 24th to 27th of July in order to train Ryûkyû Kobudô and Shôrin-Ryû Karate together under the watchful eyes of Tamayose Sensei (9th Dan). Sensei was supported by his son, Tamayose Tetsushi Sensei, Frank Pelny, Hagen Walter and other Senpai.
