JKS Course & Dan Grading with Alan Campbell Sensei 7th Dan
December 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm£10.00
We are pleased to announce the date of our next Course with Head of JKS England Alan Campbell Sensei 7th Dan is Monday 10th December.
There will be a 2 hour course taking place between 6pm-8pm which will replace the Thornleigh Class/Squad Classes. This will be followed by a Dan Grading for students and Instructors eligible for Shodan or Nidan will begin at 8pm replacing Senior Class. I cannot estimate an approximate finishing time until we know how many candidates are attempting to grade.
Due to space restrictions we will have to limit the numbers on the course so book early to avoid disappointment. All students attempting grading must train at the course, this is compulsory.
The Course will cost £10 per person and our senior grades are highly recommended to train at this event. If you are coming up for any of the junior or senior Dan Grades in the next 12 months, your commitment and attendance (or lack of) will be noticed.
Dan Grading Practise Class
Extra grading practise classes will be taking place at Thornleigh Salesian High School on the following dates (times and costs to be confirmed):
- Monday 5th November
- Monday 12th November – Grading candidates will be given application forms at this class as applications must be completed and submitted to JKS England by Sunday 25th November at the very latest.
- Monday 19th November
- Monday 3rd December
This is a class dedicated to 1st Dan and 2nd Dan Syllabus only. It is the only chance you will get to practise exactly what you will be expected to do at the grading under the tuition of a Senior Dan Grade Instructor ALONGSIDE the people you will be grading with.
Students who commit to this extra training usually perform better than those who do not make the extra effort. It does not guarantee you’ll pass, as anything can (and does) happen on the day.
But would you take an important exam at School without doing extra revision???
Would you prefer to get some kumite rounds in with the person you will be potentially sparring with at the grading???
Would you prefer to make all your mistakes before the grading and not during???
This does not replace your usual training with your Class Instructor, it is EXTRA but I cannot recommend it enough.
