Sensei Neil Jerome, 5th Dan, was back in the UK briefly from Norway and we were delighted that he visited our usual Saturday morning class. Before he moved to Norway, Sensei Neil ran Kenmei karate in Sutton. On this trip, he split his time between Kanshin in Guildford, Kenmei and Senshi Karate.
He took the all grades class first, running through kihon and then we did partner work — even the white belts got to practise the all important mai geri kick and oi zuki punch. Afterwards he ran a special senior class for a few people approaching their (next) Dan gradings.
It was a great morning and everyone worked really hard. We hope to welcome him again next time he’s back in the UK.
