A hard and technical session that combined kihon kata’s embusen and changes of direction with more demanding combinations. Sensei drew attention to the importance of preparing quickly for the next technique whilst maintaining balance to ensure smooth delivery of power to the target.
We had a welcomed break just over an hour into training, after which Sensei moved on to more advanced kata for senior grades while he sent everybody else off to the side to practise their own kata just a few more times!
The grading itself went well and the overall standard was very good. Well done to all!
