Special Dan Course - Chesterfield Bookmark and Share

6th Dans L- R Andy Brown, Nick Heald, Colin Schubert, John Holdsworth

The KUGB held the first of its twice yearly special Dan Courses on Saturday 19th April.
The course, which is free to all KUGB Black Belts, was held at the Queens Park Leisure Centre in Chesterfield and was extremely well attended.
Instruction was conducted by Sensei Sherry and Sensei Poynton and was particularly directed towards those students taking higher Dan Grades.
Those grading ranged in ages from 21 years to 73 years and they all epitomized the KUGB's philosophy of high quality Karate development through rational and rigorous training. This was evident in the results of the gradings and of particular note was Colin Schubert, who at the age of 73 passed 6th Dan and maintains a very active and wide ranging interest in all activities of the KUGB.
Many congratulations to those who passed.
