Shinji Kohata and Roberto Danubio, from 19 to 21 November 2021. An unmissable karate seminar and 1st to 5th JKF Dan Grading!

Kohata + Danubio = 19 - 21 November 2021

Three days of seminar, 12 total hours of training, corresponding to four weeks of a normal karate course. A sort of “autumn camp” led by two of the most popular Japanese and European Wadoryu masters.

Dear Karateka,

Despite the difficult situation we are experiencing and the persistence of the pandemic emergency all around the world, we are happy to announce to you the most important karate event that will take place in Italy in 2021. Two of the most appreciated Japanese and European Wadoryu masters will be in Rome to lead an awesome karate seminar dedicated to all the practitioners and teachers of this wonderful style.

Wadokai Masters in Rome is a seminar that, being part of the training and educational offer of the WKSI (Italian branch of JKF Wado-Kai), aims to foster the international perspective promoted and advocated by the Budo Charter. We truly think that an international perspective is necessary to reach for constant technical and spiritual improvement, both individual and collective. Therefore the Wadokai Masters in Rome is a very special event, because, in addition to the significantly high technical level, this seminar – far from being a one-off event – is a part of a process of confrontation, collaboration, and technical development open to anyone who wishes to participate, aiming to foster the growth of the Wadoryu family in Italy, in Europe and in the whole world.

The seminar will be held by Shinji Kohata (7th dan JKF Wadokai), and Roberto Danubio sensei (7th dan JKF Wadokai). Being very renowned and internationally appreciated teachers, they will collaborate to offer to all participants a concrete opportunity for technical and martial enrichment open to all Wado-ryu practitioners, regardless of their association or federation. Three days of intense training, profound teachings, and great karate enjoyment.

I hope that You’re going to be part of it. However, we’ll be waiting for You. In the sign of Wado.

Best Regards,


Sasaki and Kohata Sensei
