Karate Summer School 2013 - August to 9th August

2013 KUGB Karate Summer School : Course participants with the Senseis

The 33rd Karate Summer School took place at Lancaster University from the 5th to the 9th of August. The course was very well supported with approximately 150 students attending and also many daily visitors.

Instructors Andy Sherry, Terry O'Neill, Bob Poynton, Bob Rhodes, Billy Higgins and Frank Brennan divided the students into groups depending on grade and taught each class on a rotational basis, covering all aspects of Karate as appropriate to grade.

Sensei Ian MacLaren conducted a very interesting seminar on Karate history and also gave instruction on the use of the Bo to the various classes.

Senseis Sherry and Brennan conducted two extra classes for those students taking Dan gradings in the near future. The students ranged in grade from 1st Kyu to 5th Dan and were very well attended and appreciated.

A superstars competition between the Dan and Kyu grades involving Basketball, Goal Scoring, Sumo, Break Sprints and Tug of War proved to be very popular and was again won by the Dans.

Gradings were held at the end of the course and many congratulations to the following students who were successful.
