Pre-Championship training at The Leys – the Kumite end!

Pre-Champioship training at The Leys – Kata at one end and Kumite at the other!

We are very fortunate to have excellent, very highly qualified and experienced Senior Instructors in our association. Amoung them are Masaya Yumeda and Russell McAlinden Sensei, both Graded to rank Sandan (3rd Dan). In-order to hold the instructor qualification, all must undertake a stringent course, which includes First Aid training and Child Protection. This course follows many years of training in which valuable Karate experience is gained. As instructors, we all attend CPD, (Continuous Professional Development) training, which includes annual First Aid training.

Here are just a few photographs of a typical Saturday’s training at The Leys School Sports Centre in Cambridge.

Keeping an ever watchful eye on the stances!
