Thank you to everyone who made it to our Brown and Black Belt Courses on Saturday 24th January with Glenn Riley Sensei 5th Dan. Both courses were well attended and all the students worked very hard. We should say thanks to Glenn Riley Sensei for teaching 2 excellent sessions and we all learned a lot from your visit.
The Black Belts were taken though kihon in the form of a punching drill followed by learning Kata Gojushiho Dai which was actually Glenn Sensei’s Tokki Kata for 5th Dan and finishing with work on Kata Nijushiho.
The Brown Belts worked on a challenging kihon drill incorporating both punches and kicks, followed by working on Kata Heian Shodan and Jiyu Ippon Kumite and finished off by working on Kata Bassai Dai.
There were almost 100 students and Instructors training over the course of the day which was a great turnout as always. Well done to you all.

Ultimate Training Weekend Booking Form
Here is the one we have all been waiting for – and the one everyone has been asking about!
Friday 8th, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th May 2015 at Presthaven Sands Holiday Park in North Wales
The Ultimate Training Weekend has been booked and you can download your application form below. Caravans are on average £30 cheaper than the September 2014 prices and we have passed this saving onto you. The line up of Instructors is awesome and as always this will be a fantastic weekend for all the family to enjoy, not just for those who take part in karate. Bring your Mums and Dads, bothers and sisters, train hard and lets have a great time! There is so much to do at Haven and fingers crossed we will have some beautiful weather and can train on the beach again!
Deposits of £50 per caravan must be in by 28th February and the full balance to be paid by 13th March so there is plenty of time. If you would like to secure a ‘posh’ caravan I would advise that you get your deposit in earlier rather than leaving it close to that date.
Paper booking forms will be available in classes from next week onward but in the meantime you can download one below:
