Training and Kyu Grading 


16th october

We are very excited to be able to hold our next grading at the newly built Sports Hall at Chelmsford County High School for Girls (Chelmsford CM1 1RW)

Our Grading Examiner will be Sensei Frank Brennan who is known world-wide. His reputation as a competitor preceeded him and he was the man the JKA Team trained to beat at the 1990 World Championships.

Expert at both Kata and Kumite, he has been KUGB Grand Champion more times than anyone and, we suspect, he doesn't have room for all the trophies he has won over the years.

As an Instructor, his thoughtful approach and excellent explanations of techniques, mindset and strategy are very much in demand so we are always proud and privileged to be able to host him.

From the 25th-31st of October we will be holding our annual Halloweek!


During this, the week of Halloween, you can come and train in costume and get a photo at our spooky photo booth. All we ask is that you bring a small donation towards the KUGB Charity for this year: The Zachary Geddis Break The Silence Trust which you can read more about here.

We also ask that costumes have removable head pieces, eyewear and capes so they are safe to train in.

But, as with every year, we ask the ultimate question:

Are you scarier than Sensei Jane?
