Students, I’m back from a two-week family vacation in England. A karate highlight for me was visiting Sensei Iain in Cockermouth, and training with him in his garage and at his dojo during a regular class. In the one-on-one session, we worked Naihanchin, while his regular class was a good overview of many of his training ideas. I did much of my work during class with Sensei Murray Denwood, Yodan, who features in his Bunkai Jutsu DVDs. My girls had a great time playing with his kids, and it was nice to finaly meet his wife Helen. I’ve posted a few pictures on the club’s facebook site, so have a look!
