We hold a variety of different Workshops for our High Grades to help them with a range of skills alongside their regular training.

It is vital to us that our Instructors, Assistant Instructors and Young Leaders are all teaching in a clear, supportive, and safe way, which is why we hold a free course for our Black & Brown Belts each year.  

We also encourage our both our qualified and unqualified High Grades to come along too, as they can be asked to teach beginners at the back of our All Grades Classes.


We first take time to talk about the Club, our ethos ,and how we see ourselves moving forward. Then, we break out into groups to work on our teaching skills with each group containing a mixture of experienced Senior Instructors as well as those new to teaching.

Referees & Judges Workshop


Following on from the successful workshops in the past, this workshop will cover the competition rulebook in a practical way by Refereeing and Judging Jiyu Kumite (freestyle), Kihon Ippon Kumite (one-step), and Kata.

Attendees will benefit most by studying the rule book in advance (if possible) so that they can make the most of the hands on experience offered by this workshop.

This course is for those KUGB members who are looking to attend the KUGB Referees and Judges course and/or take the Referees and Judges exam; and also for those members who are looking to compete this year.

The course is chaired by
Richard Naylor-Jones, KUGB Nationally Qualified Referee for over 25 years and Richard Kheder who is also a Nationally Qualified Referee with over 21 years experience.

Our next Refs and Judges Workshop will be on: To Be Announced
