Many, maaaaany thanks to ALL 80 odd students who came to the Hanshi course (and later Hanshi Cup) in Horsham today. I hope you all took plenty away from the 6 training segments (which seemed to become shorter each time due to constant overrunning 😉 ).
For those of you who were able to eat the cake provided, I hope it was worth it – I’m not at all jealous!
I’d also like to add I’m really proud of the students from Zanshin and Horsham dojo who competed in the kata competition. Being an open division you were up against odds far above your usual grades, and you put tremendous effort into your practice and performance. I’ve had some great comments about you so believe me when I say – you have made me very proud!
I was really lucky and proud to walk away with a 3rd place bronze medal, and would like to congratulate Colin Holmes of East-West Wado (Newcastle) for his 1st place win!
See attached a few photos I had on my phone. Hopefully many more to follow!
