Squad Training Report for February 20th 2010

With the junior Europeans now over our eyes now turn to the Senior squad.

This was the first session since the Junior European's and was very well attended with over a hundred either participating in kumite or kata. For some, this was  their first taste of England squad training and what's expected of them if they make it on to the 'A' squad.

National Coach Wayne Otto OBE and assistant coach Ian Cole took the main kumite training session, whilst Ady Gray took the kata squads for this session. It was also new EKF Chief Referee Dale Gamble's first referee session since accepting the position. Click here to view a video from the session »
