Shotokan Karate Academy

Four new Shodans at the Academy

Saturday 29 March 2014

Several members of the club travelled to the KUGB Black and Brown Belt Course and Grading at Holywell, Wales on Saturday 29th March 2014.  The course was well attended by members of the KUGB from up and down the country, all keen to train with two of the top instructors in the KUGB - Sensei Andy Sherry 9th Dan and Sensei Billy Higgins 7th Dan.  The training sessions were excellent, covering kihon, kumite and kata.

Following the training sessions, a grading for 1st and 2nd Dans was held.  Four of our members, Vanessa Macintyre, Victoria Taiwo Ogunseitan, Alexandra Petrea and Jakub Bogusziewicz, took part in the grading.  All four delivered a strong performance in all aspects of the grading and all were rewarded with their 1st Dan (Shodan) black belts.

Congratulations to you all from Sensei Harford and the members of the club!
