Uruguay Summer Camp 2017 with Shihan David Pickthall
The 6th Uruguay Summer Camp was held in Salinas Montevideo March 10th-12th under the instruction of Shihan David Pickthall, IFK Vice-President, and IFK Canada was represented by VP of IFK Canada, Senseï Jonathan Hemond, and Planning Committee member Pascal Hemond.
Participants from all the Uruguayan dojos attended along with the Country Representatives of Brazil Jeovaldo Barreto and Chile German Caru. Several students from these countries participated, along with former Brazilian Champion and participant from the 5th World Tournament Shihan Luiz Feitoza, trained in the seminar. It's been 26 years since Shihan Pickthall and Feitoza fought in Japan together and the Brazilian fighters are certainly fortunate to have Shihan Luiz prepare them for our upcoming World Tournament in Romania. In all, five countries attended; Uruguay, Chile, Brazil, Canada and England.
The camp featured sessions in all aspects of the IFK and finished with a dan test for the Chile participants.
Thanks must go to Sensei German Carballo for organizing such a good camp with his team of Noelia Carballo, Rocio Gonzalez, Santiago Mosco and Claudia Lopez.
The Canadian team also went to Argentina to train with Shihan Julio C. Romero, CR IFK Argentina.
