KWF TECHNICAL SEMINAR IN NORWAY
2018-03-06

KWF Norway arranged the yearly Technical seminar the weekend of March 2-4 2018 in Oslo.

This is a yearly event that is very important for keeping up the standard for KWF Norways instructors.

The main instructor was KWFs president Shihan Antonio Pinero 9. Dan. Also Shihan Lars Hogquist 7 dan and Shihan Magne Kastad 5 dan were instructors.

The agenda was to go through most of the syllabus. Starting with 10. Kyu. Well we did not quite get to Yondan.

Shihan Antonio Pinero worked well to have our instructors understanding that there are several ways to teach KWFs techniques.

Totally close to 50 participant attended our seminar and with great joy.

We had participants from all north in the country to all south.

Unfortunately Oslo has received a lot of snow this year and Shihan Antonio Pinero had to get on top of a 4 meter high snow "mountain" in my garden and did some techniques!!

Enjoy the pictures.

The seminar was a great success and we will be back in 2019.
