6th - 11th January, 2019
Summer School has something to offer everybody and every grade!
The focus on technical ability at Summer Schools offers something to everyone of every grade. Led by the Trustees, all of whom are 7th dan, and possibly with Louis van Thieghem Shihan joining us again this year, as part of his regular pilgrimage to maintain contact with senior students of Sugano Sensei, we could have up to four 7th Dans on the mat. What a wealth of experience, we are so fortunate!
The theme will be to continue the study of the syllabus and the basic kyu requirements, which form the foundation of all our training.
This will be of particular interest to instructors as well, so they can keep abreast of the grading requirements for their
students they teach. There have been some minor tweaks to the Kyu Grading Syllabus and you can be sure these changes will
be clarified and elaborated on during this week!
