Hear from some of our club members about why they enjoy karate and what they love about Brentwood & Cranham Ishinryu!:

“I have been training for 30 years, but joined Ishinryu 7 years ago and it was the best move I ever made! Teaching of the very highest level, combining the pursuit of perfection with its relationship to reality is delivered with care and encouragement to everyone who comes to train. In a fast paced, modern world, karate keeps me fit and well in mind and body, and I love the thrill I always get from training hard and learning with my classmates.” Jack Herbert, 4th Dan

Great training sessions today guys! We hope you enjoyed that!!

And well done to all those who stayed on for the second class on Empi kata.

Don’t forget there is no class next Saturday as we have the Christmas event on but we need help with demonstrations and handing out leaflets so if you can spare any time between 11am and 3pm then that would be great!

Otherwise see you all this Wednesday evening!
