Sensei Ohta (JKAE Chief Instructor) was back in Essex on Sunday 25th March for a special training course & kyu grading. The course proved popular with well over 100 dedicated karate-ka in attendance for Sensei’s lesson with many participating in the grading that followed.
Sensei Ohta’s lessons proved a big hit with JKAE members, a higher grades lesson concentrated on kumite and the kata Jion.This was followed by a general class covering all basic techniques, kata and kumite.
