Despite landing on a day viewed with superstition (again), it was a great session to (nearly) round-off the training year. Ohta Sensei’s class was challenging and included some great exercises and a lighthearted critique that hit a chord with the younger club members especially!
The grading itself was a serious matter as always and came with a visible change in spirit. Everybody performed well and passed. There were even some unexpectedly strong performances too – well done! (I’m looking forward to seeing more of it during the lessons!)
