Yesterday senior members of the Bath club took part in one of the KUGB’s biannual special dan courses, reserved for black belts only, and on our doorstep at the University of Bath Sports Training Village. The course instructors were the KUGB’s Chief Instructor, Sensei Andy Sherry, assisted by Senseis Bob Poynton and Frank Brennan. The two hour course focused on all aspects of the dan grade syllabus, in particular basics and compulsory grading katas. The session ended with pair work and kumite, the intensity of which can be seen in the hot but happy kareteka above. Thank you Senseis!
