2014 - Jan 11 - Sensei Hamid Nam promotion to 5th Dan by Kancho Takemasa

I am honoured to be promoted to the rank of Shihan by Kancho Okuyama. The elite level training has just begun for me and as such, I am just a humble follower of great masters of Karate: Kancho Okuyama, Master Tsurouka, Master Steve Nash, and Master Tom Racey. I am also very excited to announce that Robert Naud (Robert is standing to my left in the second picture) has been promoted to the rank of 1st Dan by Kancho Okuyama. The reason this is so important to me is that for the first time I have managed to mentor a student, who is more like a brother to me, all the way from the white belt in 2005 to becoming a black belt in 2014. I feel blessed to be surrounded by such great human beings.

2013 - Nov 2 - Sensei Hamid Nam attending Master Tsurouka's seminar at Royal Military College of Canada Karate Club

S ensei Hamid Nam had a very valuable training with Master Tsurouka and his son Sensei David Tsurouka on Saturday 2 Nov 13 at the Royal Military College of Canada Karate Club . Master Tsurouka demonstrated how relaxed and sound techniques can take away strength and muscle power.

 

T he second picture has a very symbolic meaning to Sensei Hamid Nam. Sensei David Tsurouka was the one who introduced Sensei Hamid to Aikido in 1994 and explained how well it went together with Karate. It was then that Sensei Hamid started as a Shodan to learn Aikido from master Kimada who ironically taught Aikido to Sensei David Tsurouka as well.
