On Sunday 22nd September we welcomed back Sensei Garry Harford 7th Dan KUGB to York Elite. Sensei Harford held a superb 2 hour training course for Dan Grades and 1st Kyus in the morning which focussed mainly on kumite techniques. Working with partners on leg speed, reaction timing and dynamic striking techniques, this was a masterclass in the fighting art.

Sensei Harford then held an extended training class for our Kyu Grades working on the detail of basic kihon and kata techniques before grading 39 of our students. We had some strong gradings and are delighted with the performance of all of our members who graded below:

Ellie Blundell, Jake Buckton, Marcus Burgess, Aaron Clements, Nathaniel Clements, Elliot Coombes, Isla Cordes, Ben Cordes, Daniel Cordes, Joshua Dagwell, Dominic Dawson, John Dawson, Paul Driscoll, Sue Driscoll, Bethany Ellis, Thomas Ellis, Max Fentiman, Sophie Fowler, Hugh Fowler, Daniel Glover, Thomas Howell, Charlie Hutchinson, Cai Jackson, Mason Kilner, Gracie Kilner, Kaspar Lakin, Alexsander Lazarov, Peter Lazarov, Charlotte Lines, Harvey Morrison, Jack Nelson, Oliver Norton, Rachel Poels, Eleanor Poels, Matthew Poels, Abby Samuels, Scott Samuels, Gabi Sanderson, James Tattersall.

Many thanks to Sensei Harford for a great day and we look forward to welcoming him back to York Elite in the near future.
