Well, I can't make the journey to Okinawa this year, but thankfully, a gem from Okinawa came to my town instead! I am very thankful for the opportunity to train with Terauchi Kazuo Sensei, even if it was hard as hell!

The event was held in Dentoh dojo, Rose Hill Community centre in Sutton and was attended by approximately 60 -70 adult and teen students.

This is only a quick blog about the event which was greatly appreciated by all who attended. Four of us from G.M.A.U.K. were able to attend but only 3 of us could train! Vic, Matt and Koray from Hornsey dojo attended but unfortunately, Koray had to sit out because of injury. But, he made a great cameraman!

THANKS TO DAVE FOR PUTTING THE JUNIORS THROUGH THEIR PACES WITH THE BAGWORK AND PRESS UPS, SIT-UPS AND SQUATS.
THANK YOU AGAIN TO ALL P...

WELL DONE TO ALL WHO ATTENDED AND PASSED TODAYS' GRADE ASSESSMENT! I WAS IMPRESSED WITH THE LEVEL OF KARATE IN EACH GRADE LEVEL, TERRIFIC!
KEEP PRACTISING AT HOME AND TRAIN TO YOUR 100% EFFORT IN EACH AND EVERY CLASS.

 SOME STUDENTS HAVE BEEN ASKING ME QUITE OFTEN, "WHEN AM  GOING TO GRADE, SENSEI? CAN I GO TO THE NEXT GRADING SENSEI? CAN I HAVE A STRIPE ON MY BELT PLEASE, SENSEI?" THESE QUESTIONS SHOULD NEVER BE ASKED OF YOUR INSTRUCTOR. IT IS SEEN AS BAD ETIQUETTE IN KARATE. YOUR BELT COLOUR ...
