As you may or may not know, we had the ESKA Christmas dinner & dance this weekend and it was a great event with plenty of awards and certificates presented.
Sensei Ian was awarded a Kata Official qualification in recognition of his kata judging at competitions and Sensei Jeff was awarded a Senior Kata Official qualification in recognition of his expertise as an area chief at competitions. There were only about five or six awarded in total and this is their first year, so to have two in one club shows the talent and skill of our instructors.
In addition to that, Sensei Jeff was also awarded YONDAN (4th Dan)! This is an amazing achievement for both Sensei and our club. It is a fitting recognition of the quality and dedication Sensei’s karate and something we can all be proud of!
A big oooosaaaah and congratulations are in order next time you see him!
