Torbay Spring Camp.

(16/04/09) Aaisatsu members trekked down to Torbay for the Annual week long KUGB Spring Camp. 5 days of training with the KUGB's top instructors; Senseis Sherry, O'Neill, Poynton, Rhodes, Higgins and Brennan. The course involved two karate training sessions per day, with optional Bo (6ft Staff) lessons, kata competition, instructor training and grading examinations.

Double congratulations are necessary as Emma Page successfully graded to 2nd Dan (photograph below), and she also came 3rd in the Torbay Kata Competition held at the course and fellow Aaisatsu member Tom Nugent came 4th. Well done to both!
