Shinjinbukan Augsburg Dōjō, Germany — September 27 to October 3rd, 2011

Written and translated by Melanie Petrak

Texto en Español

From September 27th to October 3rd, 2011, the Shinjinbukan Augsburg Dōjō received a visit from Walter Palomeque Sensei, who is a direct deshi of Onaga Yoshimitsu Kaichō. Palomeque Sensei teaches in Chivilcoy, Argentina, and travels regularly to Spain for business. Palomeque Sensei was very kind to visit our new Dōjō and offer his support for future events.

Jimmy Mora Sensei, our Shibu Chō (director) based in New York, and Palomeque Sensei met in Okinawa almost 20 years ago, and have collaborated as fellow deshi and good friends ever since. This was Palomeque Sensei's first visit to Germany and first meeting with me, Melanie Petrak, the Shinjinbukan Augsburg Dōjō Chō (branch instructor).

The Shinjinbukan Augsburg Dōjō had just relocated to a Budōkan (Martial Arts Center) shared with other schools. This location now includes our own private space dedicated to teaching and training Shinjinbukan karate. At the time of Palomeque Sensei's visit, this space was still under construction. We therefore spent most of the time in the adjacent Aikidō Dōjō. For more information about our Dōjō, visit shinjinbukan.de.

The following photos were taken in our own room. Even though our Dōjō was still under construction, we wanted to inaugurate it, albeit only for a brief while. We started by some basic drills using Chīshi.

After training we took souvenir photos. On the right, we were posing next to our Saji Machiwara (Sagi Makiwara).

The Shīsā are guarding lions that protect houses in Okinawa. The following picture shows the Shīsā guarding our Dōjō.

Tour of Augsburg

To complement the visit, I took Walter Sensei on a tour of historical Augsburg, founded by the Romans in the year 15 B.C., and is located between the rivers Lech and Wertach.
