The weekend commencing Friday 27th July saw our Summer Course take place at the YMCA, Portland, Dorset. It was a well attended course as it has now been moved to a slightly later date to accommodate the Schools breaking up.

Sensei George took the students through Basics, Kata, Kata applications, and Ji yu kumite movements for fighting over the course. He also went through the Dan Grading syllabus incorporating Pinan`s Nidan, Yodan, and Godan.

At the end of the course 4 students successfully passed their Grading for 1st Dan.

Arthur Shipp and Charley Adams from the Bristol Club, and Jennifer Lambert, and Emily Meekings from the Stour Valley Club. Congratulations to them.
