Due to the unusually good weather we decided to have the first part of the training session outdoors in a local park. This started with a series of sprints on a path that had somewhat of an incline followed by some basic padwork. At this stage those going for grading broke off to go through Kata. We had a short break for lunch back at the gym except for the grading candidates who were put through their paces on their own for a while longer. After lunch the fighters joined back in for a more technical padwork session and as usual we finished off with a solid hour of Kumite with particular emphasis being placed on the fighters for the next tournament though I did see some good up and coming prospects. At the end of the day Shihan thanked everyone for their participation and help and said that it was a great days training and everyone worked hard.
