To be honest, I was very surprised because I did not expect him to reveal himself in front of the camera. I will start this article by thanking him and making him a little bow:
I set a common thread for this interview which was: "Get answers based on the experience of a karate expert to questions that all beginners ask themselves, to allow them to overcome certain blockages. "
-> So at first I asked my guest to to present oneself.
- Did you know that Sensei Gence was Champion of France 2010 Kata et Fight of his Federation (FFST) (and without losing a single point!)?
- And that he had arrived 3I at the Shotokan World Cup last year at Lons le Saunier?
-> Johnny then told us about his health problems (The doctors did not think he would live.) When he was a child in Reunion and his fights with repetitions.
He explains to us how the practice of karate helped him to get by and to overcome all these obstacles of life.
-> Johnny will also speak with great emotion and respect Master Nishiyama, founder of the ITKF (International Traditional Karate Federation).
He will explain what traditional karate is, and why evolution is part of the tradition.
-> We will then talk about Pedagogy in Karate, the use of videos (I wanted to know what he thought, because it concerns me directly ;-)) in learning, his Golden Puki 2004 on Kwoon Info ...
But I will not reveal everything here ;-), I let you discover by yourself on the video (46minute! Ah anyway !?!)
