During the Winter and Spring 2012 sessions, Sensei Ron found there was enough demand for both a Youth Advanced class and an an all ages Advanced kata class for brown and black belts on alternating Wednesdays from 7-8PM.
Fall 2012 session begins with an advanced kata class for black belts ONLY while demand for a brown+ class is being assessed.
Next Class: To Be Determined
If you’re brown belt and would like a class that focuses on brown and black belt kata, let Sensei Ron know you’re interested!
If you’re planning on testing or entering into tournaments over the next while, or looking to challenge yourself more, you’ll want to push Sensei Ron to bring brown belts back into these training sessions!
Here’s more information from the class as it was from January – June 2012:
All Ages Karate: 3rd Kyu+
With the entry level restriction of brown belt and higher, Sensei Ron is able to cover more advanced ways of learning and teaching Shotokan Karate kata:
- Practicing kata beyond the early Heian kata, including black belt kata
- Learning bunkai (application) for various kata, including testings
- Advanced kata drills to help reinforce your learning
What To Bring With You
This is a normal training session which will continue as long as attendance supports it, so if you appreciate the extra training opportunity, lend your support as often as you can.
Make sure to bring a strong spirit and questions about your training!
If you’re not sure about what questions to ask, ask yourself, do you understand your testing kata’s applications? Are you confused about testing requirements for yourself or your child who also trains?
This is an excellent opportunity for advanced-level students to focus on material that doesn’t normally get covered in a class shared with white-blue belts.
See you at the dojo!
