Coaching course- April 2018

Saturday the 28th of April saw the second Katana Club coaching course. We had a fantastic turnout for the course which was designed to develop the next generation of coaches to keep Katana Jiu-Jitsu at the top of its field. The course was run by Hanshi Riley, Dr Alex Surtees and paramedics Jon Banham and Heather Reeve. Everyone did exceptionally well and we look forward to seeing your progression on the mat.
Welcome to the next generation of Junior coaching assistants and senior club coaches.

And our newly qualified senior coaches

Italy 2018

We had a fantastic time in Italy at the "2018 Masterclass Weekend" hosted by Soke Stefano Mancini. A bumper group flew out and showed how strong Katana Jiu-Jitsu is both on and off the mat. We would like to say a huge thank you to Stefano and his team for organising such a great weekend and for being wonderful hosts. For all the photographs please see the photographs section of the blog.
