WTKO - SummerCamp 2017 | DE - WTKO - SummerCamp 2017 | US

Summercamp of the World-Traditional-Karate-Organization (WTKO)

From 20 July to 23 July, the sports club "Blau Weiß" Frankfurt (Oder) established the "International Summer Camp 2017" of the "World Traditional Karate Organization" (WTKO).

The venue for the camp was the Brandenburghalle of the sports center in Stendaler street in Frankfurt (Oder). For the people of Frankfurt, the organization and execution of this camp was a great honor. All the more, the organization team did not hesitate to provide a good overall environment. The 140 participants from England, Holland, Estonia, Ireland, Norway, the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and Germany in Frankfurt (Oder). From the beginning, a very pleasant and friendly atmosphere dominated the training camp.

Three times a day, three levels of performance (Level I: all Kyu-Grade, Level II: Shodan and Nidan, Level III: from Sandan) were trained. As instructors, John Mullin 8. Dan from the USA, Richard Amos 7. Dan (Chiefinstructor WTKO) from the USA, Scott Middleton 6. Dan (General Secretary WTKO) from Canada, Bruno Trachsel 7. Dan (chiefinstructor of the Swiss Karate Association and member of the Central Board) and Frank Herrmann 5. Dan (Federal Style Direction Referee JKD in the DKV) from the host club were in charge for the training. Each trainer had his very own and authentic way of imparting knowledge, which greatly increased the spirit. It was not just about karatetraining, but primarily about the immersion in the depth of each technique, as well as the teaching and practice of principles.

For the first time as a coach in Germany, John J. Mullin (8th Dan) joined the classes. Mullin started karate in the 1960s. He was one of the first generations of Karate pupils, who were taught by overseas trainers from Japan. He later became a long-standing, very successful member of the US national team and was also able to achieve major tournament wins in Japan. For example, he won the “All Styles Karate Championship” in Yokohama in 1985. In 2002, he competed successfully with the veterans in the JSKA World Championship in Germany and won gold in the discipline Kata.

After his forty-two-year career in the JKA (Japan Karate Association), Mullin searched a new path. Together with some other instructors he founded the WTKO.

In Frankfurt (Oder), John Mullin introduced many new perspectives for kumitetraining. Through simple tasks the quality of the exercise changed considerably. In addition to the karate units, Mullin also gave lessons in the Iaido. Iadio describes the "path of sword". The focus lies on the fact that the sword is still used as a weapon during pulling. Mullin also took this philosophy into his karat training. What looked so simple in the execution of the master turned out to be very complex patterns of movement, which can only be mastered by constant practice.

Simply brilliant were again the training methods and logical explanations of Richard Amos to the understanding of all participants. Amos, born in England in 1963, discovered his love for karate at the age of 10 years. He won gold, silver and bronze medals in Europe at numerous championships and tournaments. He trained at the JKA headquarters in Japan for 10 years and completed the three-year training program as an instructor of the JKA. He is thus one of two non-Japanese who have successfully completed this course in its fifty years of history. In Japan, he also achieved second and third place in the “All-Japan Championships”. Something that, until then, no non-Japanese ever did. After the program, he taught several classes at the JKA headquarters for 6 years and was allowed to open his own school in Tokyo. In 2000, Amos moved from Tokyo to New York and became a founding member of WTKO. He runs the instructor training program as a "Chief Instructor". He is also the "International Director" of the WTKO.

The emphasis of his training was mainly on the control of all techniques from the body center. "From the floor, through the legs and out of the hip." was the essence of his units. With simple exercises, Amos gradually built up sequences and partner exercises. These, according to the surprise of the participants, were part of the Kata "Unsu" (cloud hand). Without knowing it, the Enbusen of these challenging kata was learned by the participants with ease. Amos clearly showed how diverse teaching methods are and how basic principles can be used to build up complex exercises.

Also a first in Frankfurt was Scott Middleton. He began training karate in 1986, at the age of 14 years. As early as 1991, he graduated to the 1st Dan and led his own club one year later. Middleton is also characterized by a successful competition career. He joined WTKO in 2006 and has been the "International Director" since 10.04.2017.

As a coach, Middleton convinces with his open and joyful attitude towards the participants. "You should not try to get upset over mistakes. The best environment to make mistakes is this place. Make mistakes, learn from them, and go on!" During this time all participants were taken over by the task to give their the best in every move. Always giving 100% of everything you have is the core of Middleton's karate philosophy. If you are injured and have only 50% efficiency, you should give 100% on a different level.

Re-inventing the training and yourself was another important point for Middleton: a shy person can perform their Kata or Kumite confidently, while a strong person should cool his emotions and mind down during the performence. These and many other approaches were enthusiastically welcomed by the participants.

From Switzerland, Bruno Trachsel (7th Dan) traveled to Frankfurt. Trachsel began to train Karate in 1977 and has been constantly striving to improve this art.
In addition to Karate, Krav Maga (Hebrew "Contact Combat") is used in his training. This combination of systems led to interesting partner exercises, which deviated strongly from the usual scheme. Especially in the Kumite, Trachsel's suggestions were easily accessible and revealing to the participants. However, the most important thing from the Trachsel's training were not the techniques or combinations. It was his philosophy: "Karate-Do gives you back what you give the Karate-Do. No more and no less." This was the most important statement during the entire trainingcamp for the participants. A reminder that success or failure lies only in their own two hands. Not in karate.

Also employed as a coach, was the chairman of the hosting club, Frank Herrmann (5th Dan). Before starting his karate training in 1984, Frank Herrmann was already able to look back on a relatively successful judo career. Since 1989 he has worked as a karate trainer in an honorary capacity, founded the karate department of the SV "Blau-Weiß" Frankfurt (Oder) e.V. and is now the Federal Style Direction Reference of the stylistic direction JKD in the DKV (German Karate Federation). He is not only an excellent competitor but also a first-rate coach.

In his training, he focused on the development and interpretation of Kata. His judo experience was noticeable when he used various techniques for the use of spine techniques, joint manipulations and levers.

Every morning at 9am, before the regular training sessions, with Yanti Amos led classes in Yoga. She is a very experienced yoga teacher and a 3. Dan in Karate. During these classes, Yanti was referring to the philosophy of yoga, which, similar to karate, understands the individual as a traveler in its own body. In the widest sense, yoga refers to the state of inner peace. Something that can be achieved, by Richard Amos, in karate through constant training.

One of the highlights of the summer camp was a competition on friday. In a friendly contest, participants from all the represented countries joined the tournament. In an impressive way, the audience experienced what the idea of Karate-Do stands for: mutual respect and respect for the health and performance among each other.

Following the victory ceremony, the audience experienced a surprise and a moving moment. The WTKO honored Frank Herrmann with the Sony Kim Memorial Award. This award is reminiscent of american Instructor and International Campaigner Sonny Kim, who died in police service in 2015. Sonny Kim was considered as a strict Karate-Sensei who lived the ideals of the Karate-Do. He distinguished himself by his humanity, restraint, modesty and respect for others. This award is given annually to people who are distinguished by humanity, who bring the Karate character out of the deepest hearts, but always remain cautious.

There were no presents at the Dan exams on Saturday evening. The strict jury was not able to convinced by most of the candidates who took tests to Shodan, Sandan, Yondan or Godan. Only 2 managed to pass the exam to Nidan. Of the two German participants Daniel Nitsch from Schwerin graduated to the Nidan.

At such an event, of course, no party was missing. On Saturday a hearty barbecue party in the entrance portal of the Brandenburghalle was celebrated. As very persistent partymakers, in particular, the Dutch and the Swiss showed themselves. The band White Floor and a DJ provided great music.

At the end of the three Sunday training sessions the desire for more was written in the faces of the participants. Unfortunately, it was said goodbye. The participants picked up the scholar, looked after an instructive training camp with many great impressions and new ideas motivated to the future training in their own club and look forward to the next meeting. Even days after the event, the participants swarmed in countless posts and thanked the Frankfurters for a highly organized event.
