DSC09421Okikukai Serbia Hombu and its head instructor, Vladimir Popovic Sensei (Kyoshi, 7.Dan) organized the international annual Dan promotions event. Practitioners from seven countries accepted the challenge of a 3-day intensive training under the austere eyes of Popovic Sensei, that led to the Dan promotion examinations on Saturday, the 23rd of April. All the training sessions, as well as Saturday's test took place at Serbia Hombu Dojo.

Katherine Loukopoulos Sensei (8.Dan Matsubayashi Shorin-Ryu and Kobudo practitioner), head of the Bubishi Karate-Do organization attended the events as a honorary guest from Greece.
On Saturday afternoon, another nice surprise was organized by Milan Dimitrieski Sensei (Renshi 6. Dan), owner of Sanchin Dojo, who invited all the practitioners to celebrate the five year anniversary of his Dojo. Students of Sanchin Dojo made a wonderful demonstration and a great international party followed!

This gathering gave also the chance to practitioners and owners of branch dojo to meet and discuss the future plans for 2016 and 2017.
Uechiryu.eu congratulates all the participants to the intensive training and the ones who successfully passed the Dan examinations.
