On Sunday 16th March we welcomed back Sensei Garry Harford 7th Dan to York Elite for our club grading. Sensei Harford took an intense class in the morning for our 1st Kyu and Dan grades. As usual we were treated to an inspirational display of control and technical precision across the full range of karate techniques. The common view from everyone who attended was that this was one of the best classes we've ever had at the dojo and we extend our sincere thanks to Sensei Harford for the opportunity.

In the afternoon 35 of our Kyu Grades trained and graded with Sensei Harford who also expressed his pleasure at the  progress made by a number of our members since his last visit.

Congratulations to the following members who all successfully passed their grading:

Cieran Hallam, Kathryn Kerr, Henry Leites, Jocelin Leites, Freddie Lightfoot, William Lightfoot, Lorien Lightfoot, Edward Nussey-Waite, Callum Rutherford, Elissia Steenson, Aasiyah Surve, Aaron Clements, Grace Kerr, Oliver Norton, Daniel White, Jake Buckton, Cai Jackson, Dave White, Nathaniel Clements, Max Fentiman, Daniel Glover, Mason Kilner, Gracie Kilner, Rachel Poels, Thomas Howell, Charlie Hutchinson, Jack Nelson, Ellie Blundell, Dominic Dawson, John Dawson, Alexsander Lazarov, Matthew Poels, Eleanor Poels, Joshua Dagwell, and Constantino Odell.

Many thanks to Sensei Harford and we look forward to seeing him back at the dojo later in the year.
