Sensei Lacho Nenov, Chief Instructor of IJKA Bulgaria - Teaching at Portchester Karate Club.

Sensei Lacho 6th Dan and Chief Instructor to the IJKA in Bulgarai visited in July to teach at the Portchester Club, Kanku club in Bournmouth and on the Rengokai Summer course. Sensei Lacho was accompanied by Sensei Emil 4th Dan. It was one of the "best weather" weeks of the summer and in addition to dojo visits we were able to entertain our guests with a day out on the water, a visit to Cowes, on the Isle of Wight, for lunch, and a visit to the Royal Armoury musuem.

The itinary was as shown by the following pictures.

***Please do not reply to any zoom invitations or cancellations. Just join in with the lessons as advertised below!***
Planned weekly lessons for the duration.

In choosing the lessons to attend  please remember that at the dojo we split into grade groups. We obviously cant do this Online. Hence try to choose the lessons appropriate to your grade. eg white, orange and red belts need single basic techniques, whilst yellow to 4th Kyu need basic combinations and the brown and black belts need advanced work. If in doubt please contact me by telephone.


Any club members that do not know how to gain access please contact me by tele or email.

It is hoped that each lesson will be recorded and put on the club's Youtube channell.
