The dates for the KUGB’s Central Region Kata squad courses have now been posted on our Events page. For the uninitiated, these sessions are designed to help you progress with your karate under the expert instruction of Sensei Frank Brennan, 7th Dan. The first of the two training sessions is open to all grades and covers all aspects of karate, the second session for Kata Squad members only, focuses on developing kata. The squad is open to 3rd Kyu and above and those over the age of 16 years old. Selection takes place on Feb 9th and being accepted onto the squad carries the commitment of being able to attend every squad session for the year. There is no such commitment for the all grades session. If anyone is thinking of taking a Dan grading this year, there is no better preparation than attending the all grades sessions, and even putting yourself forward for the squad. For further details talk to one of the instructors.
