Training & grading with Sensei Bob Rhodes, 27 January 2021

We are delighted to welcome back guest instructor and KUGB examiner Sensei Bob Rhodes 8th Dan to run a training course and a kyu grading for us.

Sensei Rhodes competed in and won competitions in his day and in particular was a member of the victorious British All-Styles Squad which beat Japan to win the 1975-77 World Championships in Los Angeles. He is noted for his creative applications (bunkai) which really bring kata to life. He is also an active member of the KUGB Technical Committee.
