Nottingham Course with Kagawa Shihan

Paul, Matt, Steve and Simon travelled to Nottingham this weekend to train with Kagawa Shihan 8th Dan, World Chief Instructor of Japan Karate Shotorenmei.

It was a sell out weekend and if members want to take advantage of these courses please book your places with Paul well in advance.

As we know from the dojo Matt makes a great target and he was very honoured to assist Kagawa Sensei in a number of demonstrations. Take a look at the two videos to see some of Kagawa Shihan's awesome kicking abilities, Osu!
