Highly praised for the gong method

We would like to thank Dr. Yokoyama for his guidance on various "Koryoho" in France.
Through these instructions, the martial arts people, including myself, were impressed with the quality professors and effective self-protection methods.
Many security forces members (security gendarmerie and police force) who participated in the training were attracted to the fact that the teacher's self-defense technique, especially the suppression technique against attackers with weapons, was simple and realistic. rice field.
I think that the teacher's self-defense technique, which has excellent effects, is practical and immediately useful, is just right for the security forces.
I would like to say hello to you, hoping that you will have the opportunity to train this technique with your teacher again in the near future.
