SKDUN World Championships Czech Republic October 2019

SKDUN World Championships 2019.
Czech Republic.
Forming part of the England group, four of the club led the way on Monday 7th October to attend the Gasshuku on Tuesday and Wednesday and a further nine flew out on Wednesday 9th October. Other contingents from SKCE, Bournmouth (Kanku), Devonport and Asan from London travelled separately.
On this occassion we had a smaller contingent than previous SKDUN Championships. However with just four contestants we attained two Bronze medals. As usual the Championships were long days, but with so many competitors and events this was to be expected. The following pictures give an idea of the week.

***Please do not reply to any zoom invitations or cancellations. Just join in with the lessons as advertised below!***
Planned weekly lessons for the duration.

In choosing the lessons to attend  please remember that at the dojo we split into grade groups. We obviously cant do this Online. Hence try to choose the lessons appropriate to your grade. eg white, orange and red belts need single basic techniques, whilst yellow to 4th Kyu need basic combinations and the brown and black belts need advanced work. If in doubt please contact me by telephone.


Any club members that do not know how to gain access please contact me by tele or email.

It is hoped that each lesson will be recorded and put on the club's Youtube channell.
