S.K.A. Gathering 25/8/2012.
This was a session conducted by Sensei’s Dave Weatherstone and Phil Morton. These are two long term old training partners who conducted a very interesting and informative session on strength of stance, blocking, parrying and evasion.
While they each led a session, they very much blended and worked together like a well oiled machine. This was not only appreciated, but reminded us all about our basics.
This was preceded by a kids session where all students had the benefit of one to one training from the black belts present. This started with how to utilise both front and rear hook stance in preparation for attacking with back and side kicks. Then each sensei taught at the individual students level.
The sparring was spirited at times, but controlled. All in all, a succesfull day.
