RTK B+B Course and JKS England Squad Selections

We had a very busy weekend with a very well attended first Brown and Black Belt Course of the 2018 on Saturday afternoon, followed by a handful of our squad members trying out for the JKS England Squad on Sunday.

Huge thanks to all the Brown and Black Belts who attended our course, we worked on Kumite drills and kumite strategy, Bunkai of Kata Bassai Dai and some sweeps on the mats. It was great fun and both Paul Sensei and Steve Sensei were on great form. Very enjoyable afternoon indeed and we are looking forward to the next one on the 12th March.

Congratulations to all the Red Tigers who were chosen to try out for the JKS England Squad with Matt Price Sensei and Nick Heald Sensei at the LKA in Leeds. We are very pleased for you and know that you will represent our Club by doing the very best you can.

The majority of students were successful. Well done to all students from JKS England grassroots clubs who have had members selected to represent the Country. We wish you all the best of luck throughout the year. The hard work, positive attitude and consistent training must continue throughout the year.

Please see results below, our Club members are highlighted in Red:
