Sunday 29th January 12 till 2pm will be a special extra grading class with sensei Warburton instead of the squad session. Normal Sunday morning session is still on 10am till 12, then you can stay and do the grading class, or if you cannot make the morning session, just come to the grading class.
This special course will cover all aspects of the grading process and the grading syllabus itself for all kyu grades. With the clubs next grading booked for February 23rd this is an opportunity for all those wishing to grade to hone and refine their techniques in Kihon, Kata and Kumite in readiness ofr their examination. The session is espescially reccomended to those members at first kyu who intend to attempt their Dan garding in 2017. The cost of this special course is only £3.00 (Other Clubs : £5.00) which represents excellent value for an intensive session which will help students focus on those aspects of their karate requiring polish in preparation for the grading itself. Guests from other clubs are very welcome to attend. This is a fantastic opportunity to get additional practice and guidance with the clubs Chief Instructor – don’t miss it!
If your hoping to grade in February, this is your class.
