On 09th September we welcomed Sensei Garry Harford 7th Dan KUGB to York Elite. Sensei Harford took two training courses for our 1st Kyu and Dan Grades in the morning which as usual were a superb mix of technical elements, aimed at honing the basics, and the dynamic application of kumite techniques.
