Our first day back in the dojo today! How good was it to be back after so, so long! It was fantastic to have such a good turn out and also welcome 5 new starters today! It’s amazing to think we are a bigger club today, than we were before lock down! I have really enjoyed the online classes that we have run, but Im definitely not going to miss the relentless gyaks, mae geris and sweeps from Sensei Alan! πŸ˜‚

To each and every one of you that have rocked up online week in week out and trained during lock down, you are amazing! It’s been a really tough 14 months but we have made it .... we are back and we now push forward harder than ever!

On a personal note, I am OVER THE MOON to have achieved my 2nd Dan! Thank you so much Sensei Lee Smith 6th Dan and Sensei Alan Poole 5th Dan for being the best coaches, instructors and mentors that anyone could wish for - we are all so lucky to have you both pushing us all forward.

We have the HOMBU on Tuesday which I am SO excited about, and then we’re back in Cranham Dojo on Wednesday evening!

We have SO MUCH to train for this year. There are 6 months left of 2021.... let’s smash every single one of them!

It’s been a turbulant 12 months for everybody!

We have tried to remain as positive as possible throughout, with our number one priority to keep everyone training.

One of the most special things to come out of this past year, is to be able to encourage people back to training who had previously stopped.

Recently we welcomed back Laura Burton (nee Baker) and Janine Randall Was Baker

Laura started training at the age of 6 and achieved her 1st Dan at the age of 15. She competed in many Ishinryu Championships and always placed top 3 πŸ’ͺ🏼

Janine started training at the age of 6 and achieved her 1st Dan at the age of 10, her 2nd Dan at the age of 15 and her 3rd Dan at the age of 22. Janine won the English Championships at the age of 10, and went on to win many more competitions and achieve great success at Team Kata. πŸ’ͺ🏼

Both stopped training in 1999, and have returned to training 22 years later, online, with Cranham Ishinryu.

Great to have you back ladies πŸ’ͺ🏼
