Through the discipline of karate... yeah, right!
Shihan Shah away
31st Jul - 15th Aug
British IFK Camp
As I did last year, I am going to the British IFK camp again this year, and hope to come back with lots of new ways to help you learn Kyokushin!
It's for everyone
This camp is not just for black belts, but is open to everyone from 8 years and up. At the camp, we get the best of the British IFK instructors teaching, including the President of the IFK - Hanshi Steve Arneil, and Shihan David Pickthall, who many of you already know. It's also possible to do your black belt grading there too. I highly recommend it for anyone with the time and inclination!
Of course, I'm not just going all that way for the camp - so I will be doing some touristy things too. The camp is from 9th-12th Aug, but I will be away from the 31st July. Next Monday will be my last full day before I leave, and unless I"m completely jetlagged, I should be back to classes on the 15th of August!
While I'm away, Senpai Shigemi and the senpai Jack Britton will be teaching the Petersham classes, and I have asked Sensei Jenny if she could teach all the Newtown classes but one (Wed 8th), which will unfortunately have to be cancelled since she will also be away then.
Newtown students can always opt to go to the Friday class, or one of the Petersham classes instead.
Don't forget to practice for this tournament. We've already started, but there's a lot more work to do! Keep practicing - I can see that many of you are getting better already! Make sure you practice all the kata you need to know, both as individuals and teams.
Check out the Interesting links section below for a some great team kata demonstrations!
