Presentation Letter


Dear friends

Karate Braga will perform for the second time the International Seminar Budo karate in the city of Braga on June 10th and 11th, 2023. This is a two-day seminar of intense activity in which the guest instructor is an icon in this art of worldwide recognized karate that comes purposefully from Japan.

This is the second time this legendary master will visit our country and in view of the positive feedback we have received from the first edition, we expect an equally massive uptake of karateka from across the country, from neighboring countries as well as from further afield.

In this second edition and at the request of many participants of the first edition, we will organize a fraternization dinner on Saturday at the end of the day, which will be open to all practitioners and companions, in order to enable the conviviality and strengthen the bonds of friendship in a more relaxed way with André Bertel Sensei, where in addition to the buffet dinner, we will have hilarious moments of KK (karatekas at karaoke).

Interested parties should consult the general information and register in time for dinner.

The Seminar and Social Dinner will be open to all karatekas, all clubs and associations, regardless of their affiliation.

Only the will of training, the sharing of knowledge, the pursuit of evolution and improvement, connects us and interests us.

It will be a unique opportunity to once again dazzle and experience Karate-Do.

(A new way, back to the way)

For this reason the coming of Japan from Sensei André Bertel is the right choice.

Bertel Sensei was the long-time personal student of Tetsuhiko Asai Sensei (1935-2006), who unfortunately died very early and practiced the Shotokan form in a very special way.

If we look closely, this special form and connection with traditional Japanese budo can be seen, experienced and felt in André Bertel Sensei.

Not surprisingly, he is so respected worldwide as an instructor of this art of budo.

We thank the competent national, regional and local authorities, namely the Municipality of Braga and the Union of Parishes of Real, Dume and Semelhe, and all the sponsors who join us in this project, collaborating with us in this event of international dimension. We need the help of all and with union, we may find the strength…

To all who visit us, we hope to meet your best expectations, but we are sure that this seminar will once again be of great wealth, contributing to the growth of all of us on this common path, which embodies the present with the past and the past. collects us for the future.
