Neil O’Connor trained at our Taman Merdeka group in 2008. He is currently… to our collective envy… training at the Japan Karate Association (JKA) Honbu Dojo in Tokyo, Japan. Neil was training with the Karate Union Of Great Britain (KUGB) and JKA in England. Neil has written a great essay on his experience in training with some of the world’s best Shotokan instructors at the JKA on the Shotokanway website, one of the best online resources for shotokan practitioners.
