BBC @ our Dojo HQ

Over the past few days our Karate club (Hartlepool Wadokai) has been visited by both BBC Tees (Radio) and BBC Newcastle (TV), and it’s all because of the FREE first aid courses that are taking place here. Paul Suggitt and team are delivering these sessions on Thursday evenings (6-10pm) and selected Saturdays (2-6pm).

There was also a good piece on BBC Tees radio breakfast show too:

Dan Grading


On Tuesday we were able to award Joel Copeman and Roy Salmons their JKF-Wadokai Dan Grading certificates.

Both passed their black belt test under the watchful eye of Sakagami Sensei, 8th Dan and his team of examiners back in June at the Aiwakai Summer Course that we hosted at our dojo HQ.

Well done once again guys, you worked really hard for this and you should feel proud of reaching this milestone in your training. It’s great to see that you’ve both continued training hard too.
