There will be another Kumite and Kata training squad session on November 14th at Loanhead Leisure Centre. 12 till 1.30p.m.
We had an absolutely fantastic turn out at our last one and would encourage anyone from all our SKF family who wishes to advance their Kumite or Kata skills to competition level to attend.
To all coaches we will say, encourage the students you think will cope with and enjoy pushing themselves on.
We look forward to seeing as many new faces as can attend.
The Technical Committee invite all SKF members who are planning to take their Dan Grade in the next 12 months to their next seminar to be held on Sunday 10th October. This will cover the Dan Grade syllabus.
