After a brilliantly inventive warm-up, Ohta Sensei took lead of the class; slowly through basics to check positions and similarly during kumite, where lots of repetitions with the aim of correct movement over speed and power allowed time to make adjustments. Katas too, were each carefully counted before grading level groups split off with their own instructor for extra practise and to implement any last minute corrections.
Overall, the standard was good and everybody passed their grading. But there is always room for improvement so make sure you practise regularly while away from the dojo and keep checking your own movements even if you’re sure you are doing them correctly. Sensei gave lots of feedback during the class and helpful advice after the grading so please take it onboard and use it to help you progress your technique.
