Kancho Kanazawa in Dublin

On Tuesday 17th May 2011 I was once again lucky enough to be able to photograph Kancho Kanazawa, 10th Dan and Chief Instructor of Shotokan Karate International Federation which is the worlds largest Shotokan Karate Association under one chief instructor, having several million members in over 130 countries. Kancho Kanazawa is visiting Ireland as a guest of SKIF Ireland. He is accompanied on this trip by Ryusho Suzuki Sensei (6th Dan) who is one of the SKIF GHQ Instructors.

Kancho Kanazawa will celebrate his 80th birthday this year and still displays an amazing enthusiasm and passion for teaching.
