The Canberra Dojos are pleased to announce the return of Masao Ishii Sensei, 7th dan, to lead a gasshuku at the Cook Dojo in July 2017.
Ishii sensei shares a common tradition with our AKI teachers, having been a long time student of Yamaguchi sensei before his passing. Ishii sensei was last in Canberra in 1999, where he taught for several months. We fondly recall his clear descriptions, practical and concise technique, and generous nature.
Ishii sensei was nominated for his 7th dan by Takeda shihan.
