On this day….(June 12)

On this day, 12 June 1965, Hirokazu Kanazawa took his first teaching trip outside of London to The British Karate Federation’s (BKF) Liverpool dojo. The trip lasted from the 12th to 19th of June.

Kanazawa’s teaching schedule included teaching on the Sunday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. On the weekdays he taught from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

During his visit Kanazawa did not perform a grading. It is thought he taught the katas Heian Yondan, Heian Godan and Tekki Shodan.
