Just a couple of things as we head towards the end of term.
Firstly, I'm really proud of the progress everyone is making. Sometimes its hard to see it for yourself when you're training but I can definitely see improvements from everyone. Well done!
The last day of training will be next Friday for the grading and seminar which means we're into the last week of classes next week. First class back with be Tuesday 30 April after the Easter/school holiday break.
The seminar with Cheyne McMahon sensei on the Friday next week (12 April) has caught a lot of interest but please, if you're intending on coming (and I would ask that you do), please let me know.
In the meantime, and if I don't see you before next term, please stay safe and keep up the training.

For all new and returning students classes for 2019 start next week with the first class for the year on Tuesday 29 January.
I hope you've all had a good break and looking forward to seeing everyone!

A great day today for our first class of 2018. Lots of new students ranging from eight through to seventy(undisclosed) - still room for a few more though!
We worked on our basic technique and built that into some kata practice. We also focused right in on one wrist lock from Rohai kata and learnt one way to deal with someone grabbing our arm. Finally, we talked about when those techniques we looked at today might be useful in self defence vs in a tournament situation.
Next week I'm hoping to put some of the principals we learnt today to the test with some impact work as well as refining our transitions with kata.
