Double celebration for Wisbech Samurai Karate School
There was double celebration for Wisbech Samurai Karate School with the opening of its new Marshland Hall Dojo as well as welcoming one of the country's leading Sensei, Paul Herbert.
Paul is the last prodigy produced by the karate legend Enoeda Sensei of the JKA.
He trained under Enoeda Sensei directly and reached 3rd Dan at the time of Enoeda Sensei's death.
The international competitor continues today under the guidance of another English karate legend in Dave Hazard 7th Dan, who also trained under Enoeda.
Samurai Chief Sensei Steve King said: "It was an honour to welcome such a high pedigree Karate-Ka to our Dojo and the three-hour session was an amazing experience of karate excellence with a tremendous atmosphere in the Dojo.
"The day was split into three sessions. It was a truly amazing day.
"Paul will be back with us in August as we have a summer Gashaku Karate Camp weekend."
Sensei King has been training personally with Herbert for some time and has this week been invited by Paul to train with Hazard.
Samurai were also marking the opening of their new training Dojo and Grading Centre at Marshland Hall.
The new Friday night class has grown rapidly and will soon be adding an extra session.
