Summer Camp Report
The 2018 J.K.A.W.F. Scotland Summer Camp and Dan Grading were held 14th – 16th of August this year at the New venue near Glasgow. This venue is only 5 minutes from Glasgow Airport and in the centre of Paisley.
This was so successful that we intend to hold the event every year at this excellent venue,accommodation was less expensive than Edinburgh and the train to the centre of Glasgow only take 11 minutes and run every 15 minutes.. If flying into Edinburgh Airport the train only takes 45 minutes to Glasgow, so all in all a convenient and livly venue.
The course was Instructed by Kawasoe Sensei and Shina Sensei over the 3 days with really good and structured training for all grades. The course was attended by over 170 Black Belts and many brown and kyu grades,classes were split and Instructors changed twice daily. Both Instructors displayed great enthusiasm and effort in every class, encouraging and inspiring students to achieve greater skills.
All kyu and all gradings including 5th Dan took place on Saturday afternoon, withover 69 students taking Black Belt Gradings. Shina Sensei and Kawasoe Sensei gave advice and were very helpful in giving advice to all candidates. The pass rate was very good and everyone appreciated the support and advice given.
