We were delighted to host Sensei John Parnell, 6th Dan, again as our guest instructor. This is the third time he has visited us. He took our regular all grades class followed by a senior class.
The classes focused on developing speed. Karate is dynamic but when we learn something for the first time we practise it slowly until we get it right. The trouble is, when you’ve finally got it right, you have to remember to speed up the technique. Sensei John guided us in this class on how to do just that! The secret is relaxation of course and we spent time working on relaxing and tensing just at the last minute.
Sensei John said how pleased he was to see how everyone had improved since his previous visit.
Thanks to Ann for taking the photos!
