The Goshukan Gasshuku is an Annual Training Camp sanctioned by the IOGKA, and hosted by the Columbus Dojo. In addition to Goshukan-Ryu Karate topics (Shuri-Te and Five Ancestor Fist), guest Instructors are brouught in from traditional disciplines such as Kodokan Judo, Ju-Jutsu, Okinawan Kobudo (Weaponry), and other Japanese/Okinawan styles of Karate.
The first Goshukan Gasshukuwas held at Cooper Creek Park in the summer of 1999, and is held now in the fall every year. The purpose of this event is to come together and train with like-minded traditional martial artists; to train, share, learn, make new friends, and re-unite with our old friends. The word Gasshuku means to ‘come together’ and is traditionally held outdoors; we come together to train with old friends and make new ones every year.
The IOGKA Columbus Dojo is hosting the 13th Annual “Goshukan Gasshuku” Annual Training Camp.
Every year like-minded traditional martial artists come together to train, sweat, learn, and share. Come and join us again this year for great training and friendship!
