Firstly, I'd like to apologize for the late broadcast. We have had some issues trying to procure the location to host the event. Due to this issue, we are also apologizing for the shorten registration time table. We are doing an online registration this year, and just simply mail the payment. Now lets get to the goodies!
Arai sensei and GKA are proud to announce and invite everyone to the 9th Annual GKA Taikai, Promotion, AND seminar! This year, we have the honor to host Waichiro Kurita sensei, Hachi Dan, and Koji Onda sensei, Hachi Dan. Both of the sensei are Tokyo Metropolitan Police and a multi-times participants and winner of the All Japan Hachi Dan tournament. Onda sensei was the winner of 2018 tournament, and Kurita sensei is twice 3rd place, including the recent 2019 tournament.
