SEKU Kata Focus Class June 2018

SEKU Kata Focus Class June 2018, Priory School – Portsmouth.

The Focus on Kata classes are really enjoyable as we tone down the usual blood
and thunder for more technical and a relaxing way of learning. I am really grateful to Alan Lewis from Crofton SSK who came up with the idea of this class and wish we had started them sooner as it is a great way to get our members together. It is also a great way to meet our senior instructors away from the scary gradings that is the usual time we meet. The next class is only a couple of weeks away and the
instructors on that class.



We look forward to seeing you all there. Osu!
