Father and son both getting recognition for their efforts- well done Bobby and Rune 👏🥋

Les Bubka Sensei demonstrating an application from the kata Seipai. Very similar to a section from Heian Yondan. Do you recognise it?


A real honour to have Sensei Adamou 10th Dan at the club on Monday, and to be joined by Sensei Michael Fletcher 7thDan from PSKO, and Sensei Lawrie Turner 5th Dan from IASK Shintai Wales.


Training with Shihan Adamou today, Monday 6th, 7-8pm, St. Swithun’s church hall, PO5 2QZ.
Oss 🥋


There is no pressure attend a class but if possible could you let the instructor know if you can’t. No explanation needed, but it helps planning.
Oss 🥋


Sensei Adamou 10th Dan (with Sensei Tyrie and Sensei Turner, who will both be present) will be teaching at St.Swithun’s Church hall, Southsea (Shintai Karate dojo) on Monday 6th May 7- 8 pm. This is a unique opportunity to train with one of the most senior karateka in the country - for less than the cost of a pint of beer!!
This is an open class. (Hopefully a future course will be organised where he can teach longer 🤞).
Contact Sensei Tyrie for further information if you need it.


Tekki Shodan from Will, good effort


Today at Shintai Wales, all heian kata, plus tekki shodan, and Bassai Dai for Will, then a run through kihon kumite, good session

(Contact Sensei Tyrie for further details).

Small class is always a good excuse for some different training 😊 Some simple exercises using Bo staff.
A proper Bo class to be planned for later in the year 🥋

Happy birthday Sensei Nicholas Adamou 10th Dan, our Chief Instructor.
One of Kanazawa Soke’s seven samurai - and the only one still teaching (and training!!).
Now in his seventies he still is a force to be reckoned with - proof of the health benefits of Kanazawa’s teaching. Oss 🥋


Well done to those who came training on Valentine’s Day!
Successful run through of grading syllabus 🥋

Reminder no class next Wednesday.
