IOGKF 2011 Miyagi Chojun Sensei Gasshuku with Higaonna Sensei

By: Sensei Moisés Villegas – IOGKF Mexico Chief Instructor

Newly appointed IOGKF Mexico Chief Instructor, Sensei Moises Villegas and his team recently hosted Higaonna Sensei and Nakamura Sensei in Caucan, Mexico for the 2011 Miyagi Chojun Festival...

Last May, we had the opportunity to host one of the IOGKF’s most prestigious events, the Miyagi Chojun Festival, which took place in Cancún; one of the most beautiful places in México.


Many people from all over the world visit Cancún in order to relax and also to enjoy  the wonders of a place such as this, which is home to the incredible crystal sea, Chichenitzá (one of the 7 new world wonders) and many other attractions!

We had the honour to have Sensei Morio Higaonna with us, as well as Sensei Tetsuji Nakamura to teach us. They shared once more their experience and knowledge with all the eager participants.

We all learned from them not only Goju ryu Karate, but how to find out it's real meaning and how to make it part of our life. Many thanks again for being part of our development as human beings.

This was also an opportunity to share this event with friends and members of our families, to meet new people, make new friends and to make our IOGKF family stronger and more united.

So, the only thing I can say about this is that it was a total success in so many ways!

We hope to see each other again in Okinawa!
