No training on Monday 25th April and Monday 2nd May 2011

As normal, Kelsey Kerridge Sports Hall will be closed on the two upcoming Bank Holiday Mondays, 25th April and 2nd May, so there will be no training on those dates. Normal training will resume on 9th May.

Kumite descriptions added

Descriptions of Ippon and Jiyu-Ippon Kumite set defences are now available in the syllabus section. Students should find these useful when learning these.

Well done to all 29 students who graded on Sunday 13th March 2011. We have pictures and results.

2011 Events

The dates for events in 2011 have been added to the Google Calendars. These include dates for gradings, the SKA Open Day and SKA Kata Courses.

Extra training: Monday 7th February

There will be another extra training session on Monday 7th February. Following the normal training at Kelsey Kerridge, there will be an hour from 9.30 to 10.30 focussing on the performance and applications of the kata Bassai Dai. This is a pivotal kata, and will be a very useful session.

New terminology quizzes available

There are now quizzes available for each category of terminology, available from the terminology page. The quiz is randomised - never the same quiz twice! This is of particular interest to those studying for their Black Belt, who will need to know all of these.

Christmas Closures

There will be no training over the Christmas period, but we expect to see you bright eyed, bushy tailed, and ready to work off those mince pies in January. Details of the last training before Christmas and the first in the New Year are here.

We wish you a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

Grading: 12th December 2010
