Hartlepool Wadokai – Start of Year Course 2015

Start of Year Course 2015 GROUP PHOTO

The club held it’s annual start of year course on Saturday and once again it was well supported. The event gives students the chance to get rid of those cobwebs from the Christmas and New Year break because it’s a much longer training session than a regular class. This is particularly beneficial since the next club grading is just a few weeks away.

We had a full compliment of instructors so students were given a lot of specific feedback on their basics, pairs work and Kata (pre-arranged form). We also had time to work on some wrist manipulations and controls and the advanced students went through some Tanto Dori (Knife defence).

Thank you to everyone who supported the club by attending.
