SHIHAN ANTONIO PIÑERO IN COSTA RICA 2013
2014-02-10

From December 12 to the 17th, Costa Rica KWF had a special visit from Shihan Antonio Piñero, who is currently the KWF Chairman and the President of the European Kyokushin Federation. This was a special invitation made from the Costa Rica KWF Representative Sensei Mauricio Alvarado.

On December 14th the KWF hosted an international Seminar in charge of Shihan Piñero. In this occasion we received the visit of several Karate Organizations such as Shidokan, Kyokushin Kan, IKO Matsushima, Ashihara and Shieijyuku Karate. In Costa Rica a movement of cooperation between different styles is being promoted by Sensei Alvarado in order to elevate the competition and learning level of all the students regarding their beliefs or affiliations.

The Seminar was very interesting to all the practitioners since Shihan Piñero is known for his excellent teaching capacity and technical skills. During the training, basic areas of Kihon, Idogeiko, Fighting Techniques and Self Defense were covered.

The next day a Kyu and Dan examination was held, where students tested for green, brown and black belts. In this opportunity, the KWF Representative for Costa Rica was awarded his 4th Dan.

Not only did Shihan Piñero teach karate, but he had the opportunity to go sightseeing in our beautiful country, getting to know our wildlife, vegetation, volcanoes, and historical monuments.

 

Indeed this was a great event for the Kyokushin Karate in Costa Rica, which will surely increase its technical capacities in training thanks to the knowledge and expertise from Shihan Piñero. We surely hope in the near future we can have him again in Costa Rica
