Spring Karate Course - 4th April 2005

21st Spring Karate Course, Kata Competition and Grading

4-8 April 2005

The 20th Spring Karate Course at Paignton was attended by approximately 150 students, almost half of whom were Dan grades.

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

Kata Competition

A Kata competition is held on the Thursday of the course. As usual with competitions, there were a few nervous looking faces, but those who entered were pleased to have done so, especially those for whom this was their first experience.
