Excellent and very inspiring course by Kobayashi Shihan in Bath. 4 days of fun and sweat. Very good attendance, with lots of people from many different associations. Exhausting and exhilarating.
Congratulations to Michael for passing nidan on the course!
Thanks to Jeff and everyone for all their hard work organising everything.
Another excellent course by Hiroaki Sensei – well attended with lots of energy throughout all the sessions and into the evening. Thanks to everyone who took part!
Congratulations to Myra on passing her shodan grading with flying colours.
It’s almost time for the London Open Course.
Hiroaki Sensei will be arriving mid-week and it may even have stopped raining by Saturday. Don’t forget your weapons!
