With just under 8 weeks to go, time is ticking away for you to book your place at the Gasshuku Summer Training Camp on 5th-6th July in Hockley!
This is our main training event of the year and so should definitely not be missed!
It is open to all ages and grades and as well as being packed out with great training sessions both indoors and outdoors, there will be an open testing at the end for students to attempt 6th kyu (green belt) and above.
(There will be a test for attempting 8th kyu (yellow) & 7th kyu (orange) the week before at the South Ockendon dojo).
OPEN TESTING means that provided you have completed the minimum lessons and time on your current grade and you feel confident enough, you can put yourself forward to test.
Even if you’re not eligible to test, you can still come along and train for the weekend and pick up lots of information that will help to accelerate your karate to the next level.
Another reason not to miss out is that this year we have 3 people attempting Nidan (2nd Dan)! It’s a very tough test both physically and mentally so be sure to train alongside Caroline Hang Hong, Kim Mandy & Samuel Parker over the weekend and give them all of your support on the Sunday.
The last time we saw anyone attempt this was over 2 years ago and even the opportunity to get to test for this level in Seitou Ryu is not given lightly so please do your best to support them.
See you all there!
