Hambleton Week 1

We were keen to start training at Hambleton as early as possible, despite it being the start of the school holidays. Unfortunately both Sensei Andy and myself were not able to get there, so it was down to Becks to step up to the mark.
I think she was glad to see that Senpai Ian was there, even though he was happy to let her teach and he joined in with the training.
Beck's started with normal warm ups and went onto kihon, half steps forward and back with blocks, punches and kicks.
The session was finished off with kata Heian Shodan and Nidan. As a relatively inexperienced instructor Rebecca probably pitched it just right. She taught the basics she has done with Sensei Kato, session after session and with a small but mixed group of grades focused on techniques and kata that they were experienced in.
Hopefully it will boost Rebecca's confidence in instructing and was an enjoyable session for our members.
Hope to see you all this Wednesday.

  • The first night at Hambleton was, for me an excellent night. Thanks to those who trained, and thanks to Rebecca for good, competant instruction. Your training with Kato Shihan has certainly helped in your instruction style and just as important you can tell you have had benefit from helping Sensei Andy instruct in the schools.

    Hears to many good nights at Hambleton as well as Barlby
