The monthly regional senior training was hosted in Vereeniging dojo on Saturday, 9th March 2019. Training was conducted by Marius Jordaan Sensei who started the session with a variation of one step kumite with emphasis on effective counter attack.
This was followed by kihon presented by Andrio Lombaard Sensei. The focus of this month’s basics was the Shodan grading syllabus, specifically arm techniques.
The final two sessions were focused on kata with Martin Pretorius Sensei presenting kata Jion and Simone Roig y Collado Sensei presenting kata Basai Dai. Both katas are essential in preparation for Dan grading.
Training was well attended, with everyone training very hard. Students from Vereeniging, Vanderbijlpark, Potchefstroom, Pretoria, Centurion and Alberton were present.
