On Wednesday members from Chelmsford SKC attended a Shotokan Tigers Easter Special Course at Dovedale Sports Centre. A large number of students attended, ranging from White Belt to Black Belt, and they were taught by Sensei Jane Naylor-Jones (5th Dan).

The course started with a warm up, and then the Tigers were put through their basic techniques.
Sensei Jane had a number of Assistant Instructors who were then able to take smaller classes according to grade level. Whilst in the meantime some higher grades practiced their Team Kata for the upcoming KUGB National Championships in May.
At the end, as usual, there was time for the group to work on their speed, balance and teamwork skills as they let off some steam with some relay races!

As usual the course was a great success, the date of the Chelmsford Tigers Summer Half term Special Course will be the 27th May so please put this date in your diary.
