Karate Kid: Amanda Odundo

One of the most popular cultural elements from the Far East is martial arts. China’s Kung Fu, Japan’s Judo, Karate, Kenpo and Aikido as well as Korea’s Tae Kwon Do (which is usually confused to be Japanese) are some of the most popular forms of martial arts in the world. Several are practised in Kenya and they are fairly popular as a sport so we caught up with one of my dear friends, Amanda, to tell us a little bit about Karate and her Karate journey. Enjoy 🙂

In a perfect world, Gillian would be travelling round the world in her red vintage VW T1 van (Hippie Van) gathering stories of the people she meets and retelling them to those ready to listen. She is in the process of building this world which is now going to have all of you in it.

Language Café | Part Three

The first Japanese language café was, in our opinion, a huge success and the turnout, honestly, much better than expected. A language café from this description given here is basically about conversation and improving or bettering one’s language speaking skills as well as getting to know more about the culture behind that language. Our theme being Japanese, we welcomed all Japanese learners and those interested in the Japanese culture for the event.
