Dudley Shukokai and Pensnett Shotokan karate clubs joined forces for a last training sessionbefore Christmas.
With over 60 students attending the session from both clubs, it was on opportunity for everyone to train with different people, of all abilities and for the students there was also an added bonus of having 12 black belt instructors to seek advice from.
The session started with focus pad work to improve stamina, overall fitness and speed.
Everyone had the chance to train with the black belts which sharpened the students up considerably.
Then onto fighting, everyone was sharper after doing the focus pad work.
We finished the session with kata and everyone had a chance to show their kata before the grading coming up this Sunday.
Both Sensei Mandie Read and Sensei David Bowater would like to thank the members for their support.
