Lessons at Hempstead dojo date changes:
We are really excited to let you know that our 2nd Annual Club competition will be held on Saturday 10th October from 12.30pm at EP School (so nice and local).
We have a new category this year, aimed especially at higher grades, but all grades may enter and this is our display category. Juniors may demonstrate a range of choreographed take downs (like the Turtle power display at our 15th Anniversary!) or perform an individual weapons display. (However, please speak to your instructor about safe choices of weapons, so no flaming nunchukas!).
For those new to the club, our Karate competitions are balanced between being all inclusive and maintaining a competitive element. The two main categories are Kata and Kumite (free style semi contact fighting). ALL members can enter either event as we have a number of categories including categories for students from our nurture lessons. We will send out more details about what we are looking for in these categories in coming weeks.
We also have categories for Team Kata and our unique Parent and Child Team kata, so please ask about these.
