Welcome Pete, Intern #8!

Richard here!

On Monday night, the new Shiramizu Karate Intern, Pete Williams from England, arrived at Tokyo's Narita Airport! After 20hours of traveling from London to Dubai to Narita, he was met at the airport by the current interns Erica and Louise.

Although the internship is 6 years old now, Pete really is intern #8 since we've had 2 interns each year over the last 2 years.

On Tuesday morning bright and early, Pete met with Sugito Kindergarten Principal Mrs. Mizuno along with Louise and Arakawa Sensei.

He already has a Wado karate background so other than immersing himself into all things Japanese, Sensei has already planned to register him for the many tournaments that are coming up, as well as preparing him to challenge the Wadokai dan test next spring.

We all wish Pete good luck, and thank him for coming to Japan to keep the internship rolling along!
