Anders-sensei nominated to the Swedish Martial Arts Gala

Kampsportsgalan 2014 - 5 år (Swedish Martial Arts Gala 2014 - 5 years)Karlstad Shibu congratulates Anders-sensei who has been nominated to the Swedish Martial Arts Gala (Kampsportsgalan) in the category “Traditional Practitioner of the Year”! In a comment to the regional news Värmlandsnytt he says “I’m happy. But to be perfectly honest, I would have preferred to see my friend nominated. He was paralyzed in half of his body after surgery to remove a brain tumor, and the doctors said he wouldn’t be able to practice anymore. However, he has an iron will and has made a strong comeback, including going to Japan where he successfully graded to 5th dan”. Anders-sensei also says anything that gives visibility to Shorinji Kempo in the media is positive.

The festival will be held at Berns in Stockholm on March 22nd.
