The Andre Bertel Seminar 2020, which was scheduled for April 4-5, 2020 in Bavaria, Germany, has been postponed. Andre Bertel is going to visit Bavaria on July 25-26, 2020. The Shotokan Times is the official media partner of the seminar.
Many karate events and seminars worldwide have been canceled or postponed in order to limit the Corona virus outbreak. According to rumors, even the Tokyo Olympics 2020 might become postponed.
Punito Aisenpreis, head of the organizing Dojo Bodhidharma, sent the following announcement:
Dear Budoka, dear Bushi,
with a heavy heart we have to postpone the course with Shihan Andre Bertel in April 2020.
Travel restrictions and measures against the Corona virus in both Germany and Japan have made it necessary to postpone the date.
We are in close contact with the local health authorities and Shihan Andre Bertel to make a new appointment in a more favorable time in the summer of 2020, on 25. And 26 July 2020. Then Bavaria will show itself at its most beautiful and warmest side!
As Budoka, we choose our path with a sense of proportion and the unwavering fighting spirit and submit to the inevitable!
Shihan Andre Bertel sends you good wishes and a strong Genki! He will send you a message of greeting via video in the next few days.
We thank you for your understanding and wish you a healthy and powerful training time! As soon as we have further news, we will get back to you!
Osu und Yoroshiku
The whole team of The Shotokan Times hopes for a fast resolution of the Corona virus crises. We also hope that our global Shotokan community stays save and sound. If we can support you, just let us know. We wish you a great Andre Bertel Seminar 2020.
