20th Spring Karate Course, Kata Competition and Grading - 9th April 2004

20th Spring Karate Course

The 20th Spring Karate Course at Paignton was attended by almost 200 students, approximately half of whom were Dan grades.

The five day course covered all aspects of Kihon, Kata and Kumite and in addition there were Bo classes, an Instructor qualification class, lectures and a Kata competition.

A Kata competition is held on the Thursday of the course. For some, this will be their first experience of competition, but help and encouragement is always on hand from the more seasoned competitors. A friendly and enthusiastic atmosphere always makes this a very enjoyable event.
