IOGKF Romania Gasshuku with Sensei Victor Panasiuc
By: Cristian Lambrea – IOGKF Romania
IOGKF Romania hosted IOGKF Moldova Chief Instructor, Sensei Victor Panasiuc for a Gasshuku. This was the third year in a row that this event had taken place and is a tradition that is set to continue...
At the invitation of Sensei Cristian
Lambrea, Sensei Victor Panasiuc, IOGKF 6th Dan from
the Republic of Moldova took a Gasshuku for IOGKF Romania for
the third consecutive year. The event took place in Bucharest,
the capital of Romania from May 28 – 30, 2010.
The Gasshuku had 80 participants of all genders and ages; from small children to grown-ups, all sharing the same passion and dedication for Goju-Ryu Karate-Do.
Even if the participants were fewer than last year (2009), when the same seminar had 150 Karate-ka, the Gasshuku organiser, Sensei Cristian Lambrea said that this year’s presence was quite good taking into account that Romania was struck by the economic crisis and that the students deeply wanted to take part in the third consecutive seminar under Sensei Victor Panasiuc in Romania, and hopefully this will be a tradition.
This time too, as in the past years, Sensei Victor Panasiuc reached the hearts of all those present, bringing them to Okinawan Goju-Ryu even more.
Sensei Cristian Lambrea said that although the training was hard, sometimes exhausting, the satisfaction that you get after you pass through these tests cannot be described in words - especially after each training kids and seniors students came out of the dojo full of energy and with a smile.
I enjoyed it, says Sensei Cristian Lambrea, when at the end of the training Sensei Victor Panasiuc noticed an increase in the level of the training of our athletes from the previous years; So gratifying for us given that we joined so soon into this great family called IOGKF.
