loukopoulosKobudo Kata Competition – Some Facts, is a great text regarding Kobudo Kata competions, written by Sensei Katherin Loukopoulos of Matsubayashi Shorin-Ryu (8Dan) and World Champion in Kobudo at the Okinawa Championship of 1997. Sensei Loukopoulos lived in Okinawa for 15 years and trained under historical figures of Karate and Kobudo. She is also one of the very few non-Japanese who ever took a first place in Okinawa's World Competition of Karate and Kobudo. Sensei Loukopoulos kindly shared this manuscript with the community.
