  Welcome to A.K.S. Videos
 
 

Some of our A.K.S. students and instructors have been participating in various tournaments, as well as conducting classes and seminars that have been video recorded.  There is also some "vintage" footage of instuctors in tournaments / seminars / or exhibitions.  We are working on instructional footage from Sensei Lieb that we will be able to share when these videos have been uploaded to the "YouTube" website.

We have created this "Video-Link" page so that we may share these with our members and guests.   We will be adding more links as they become available.  Enjoy.

Frederic A. Reinecke  8th Dan   AKS Assistant Chief Instructor
Holland, MI - March 22, 2008 - Fred says, "I competed in Holland at the Western Michigan Karate Championships and had a pretty good day.  Even though, as we speak, I'm nursing some bruised ribs and my hips aren't working as well as they were on Saturday.  I came a heartbeat away from taking the Grand Championship match but lost in sudden death.  Oh well, there is one more tournament on the schedule for April and then I'm through until I get the itch to compete again."
