Jacksonville World Yoshukai Karate students attended the 32nd annual WYKKKO Winter Camp Feb. 11 in Pensacola Beach, Fla. The winter camp included a day at the beach for warm-up, stretching, and basics in preparation for karate training in katas, weapons and sparring. At the end of the workout the participants took a dip in the ocean with water temperatures in the mid 50’s.
