On Sunday 04th September we were priveledged to host KUGB Chief Instructor Sensei Andy Sherry 9th Dan for our Club Grading. Sensei Sherry started the day with a two hour masterclass for the Senior Grades sharing his extensive experience and expertise throughout the class. Through demonstrating a deep understanding of each technique, everyone agreed that Sensei Sherry took our karate, whether in kihon or advanced kata (Chinte), to a new level.
