from Shihan
Dear Dojo members and friends
The dojo will close on the 24th until the 6th of January for Christmas and New Year holidays. We would like to invite you to our Christmas Dinner at Nanakusa japanese Restaurant,Glasgow  on Friday the 19th of December at 8.00 p.m. Please contact Mr.Jonathan Mendoza  to confirm if you’re coming.
It has been a very successful year for Kyokushin Karate Fernando Dojo SoKyokushin UK. We organised two major events: the International Seminar with Saiko Shihan Hasegawa and the first Kyokushin Cup Open tournament. I hope you gained some experience from these events. I want to contribute something positive for our our members.
This year I also successfully completed my 5th Dan grading in Japan and completed the 50-man kumite. I consider this the true symbol of Budo. My 50-man kumite was for my teachers,family, my dojo members and all of my friends. I appreciate your contribution to the dojo to make us a success.
In 2015 we are planning to run the UK Kyokushin Cup and host Saiko Shihan Hasegawa and Takuma Koketsu (the 2 times world champion and Saiko Shihan’s top student) for an international seminar.
I wish you and your family a merry Christmas and successful New Year!
Yours in Kyokushin Karate
Shihan Prasanna Fernando
