We were lucky to have EKF Northern Regional Coach Frank Pullano Sensei visit our dojo on Sunday 9th July and run a session for us.
The session started with a technical focus on the fundamental techniques of sports Kumite and built from there into scenario drills. While all basic techniques where covered things built so that the session, in short, was focused on scoring the kizami and then countering the kizami (in various ways).
Below you find a few short video clips from the session:
We would like to thank Frank Pullano Sensei for making the trip and helping us with the little details that make all the difference at the top level.
After the recent successes of our athletes making our associations Kumite squad, this weekend saw the kata trials take place.
A big congratulations to the following athletes from Liverpool Karate Academy for making the CIKA England Kata Squad:
