Hartlepool Wadokai End of Year Course & Christmas Party (Bonenkai)
Saturday 14th December
Dojo HQ: 126 Whitby Street South, Hartlepool, TS24 7LP
We’ve adopted the Shiramizu Dojo / Japanese tradition of having a ‘forget the year’ party or Bonenkai each December. The Christmas party at our club is always preceded by a free end of year training course where we carry out another Shiramizu tradition – everyone performs 1000 punches! (Last year we also did 1000 kicks but this nearly broke the seniors so we didn’t do it this year!). The course is always a great chance for students who attend different classes throughout the week to get together as one group.
After the hard training session we quickly set up for the Christmas party. We had another great disco from Nick & George – thanks very much guys. We also had a ‘best decorated Christmas cake’ competition. Here are the entries:
