Summer Camp 4th-7th August 2023 details to follow.
Summer School is normally an Eastpoint event, but we are happy to open Sunday for a locally based non bias non political Southampton Gasshuku, if we have the support to do so.
Summer School for us is not all about Eastpoint karate we only organise it for everyones benefit, The Sunday Gasshuku its about the company and getting together in a neutral environment, thanks goes to the instructors and students that have grace us with their presence on the previous years. Those people who have not attended before you will find our summer gasshuku is a very laid back affair and you will find the instructors very approachable. We tend to have guest instructors on the Sunday Gasshuku to which we give priority sessions too, as they have made the effort to make time for us. so if you fancy it and you would like to teach a session get in touch, if not get in touch anyway maybe come along and have a chat and meet other karate nuts over a brew or beer. This is an invite only event so instructors please contact me before inviting any other people as we have a limit on numbers. Non Eastpoint students invites will only be sent to the Chief Instructor/s and only with their permission will we allow you to attend as we are not out to upset anyone. once we know what instructors are intending to teach on the Sunday Gasshuku we will put out a schedule for the day.
