Date: April 7-8, 2018
Place: Coxim, Mato Grosso do Sul
Organizer: Brazil Branch
On April 7-8, the Regional Championship and technical seminar were held in the city of Coxim, Mato Grosso do Sul. The Regional Championship was held with 50 athletes, and at the technical seminar, Kihon, Kata, and Idogeiko were updated. In addition, a grading examination was held along with the seminar.
Coxim is the town of the Mato Grosso do Sul state in the Midwest region of Brazil. This town is 6,000 km away from Sao Paulo where Hombu Dojo of the Brazil Branch is located.
Such a distance makes learning difficult, but Shihan Denivaldo Carvalho always makes the updates, and demands that instructors come to São Paulo, or vice versa, as was done this time.
