News Special Club Sessions & Kyu Gradings

Special Training & Grading with Ohta Sensei October 2021

It was great to welcome our karate association’s Chief Instructor, Ohta Sensei, back to our dojo for a brilliant training session and grading.

Although we hosted these special classes online and in the dojo with limited, and age-appropriate numbers, this was the first time since 2020 that we were able to open the session up across age bands. It’s almost unbelievable to think that nearly two years has passed since the onset of the covid pandemic, but inspiring how, despite all the restrictions and closure of facilities, Shiranamikai students continued with karate training online, outside and by whatever means possible.

Well done all. There were some hard-earned certificates and new belts this time.
