On Sunday 16th December we welcomed Sensei Garry Harford, 7th Dan KUGB, back to York Elite. Sensei Harford took two training classes in the morning, the first for Senior Dan Grades focusing on the Kata Gojushiho Sho. As ever Sensei Harford's eye for detail and demonstration of the advanced techniques required to perform this Kata were impressive. The second class took our Junior Dan Grades and 1st Kyu through their paces incluidng working on the Katas Empi and Bassai Dai.

Sensei Harford followed these classes with a training session for our York Elite Kyu Grades preparing them for their grading examination in the afternoon. Congratulations to all of the Kyu Grades who passed their grading and are listed below. We'd like to extend our thanks again to Sensei Harford for a fantastic days training and we look forward to welcoming him back to York Elite in the near future.
