While we haven’t been able to train together in the dojo, thanks to the wonders of modern technology and the internet, we have been able to train together via video link.
Lessons have been split into grades for the most part with White to Yellow belt in one lesson, Green to Brown and White stripes in another, and even the 1st Kyus got in on the action with their lesson at the start of the day.
We can’t say how proud we are of the number of students who have continued to train with us, and heart felt gratitude to all the higher grades who have helped in either running a class or ‘spotted’ from their seats while Sensei has been teaching.
Here’s a few photos from some of our lessons!
March 2020 Grading
On 14th March we held our first grading of the year. Such a great turnout and all the hard work from our students paid off. A special mention to Olivia who won the junior trophy for all your hard work, and to Miss Beecroft for all the hours put into training and the behind the scenes work you put in.
November 2019 Grading day
A special well done to Evie and Mark for being awarded the club trophies. Truly deserved. Also to those of our senior students who double graded – your hard work truly paid off.
We Are 10!!
2019 saw NPKC celebrate it’s 10th Anniversary – and we know how to celebrate. What an amazing day we had.
As well as celebrating 10 years of NPKC and we also celebrated Mr Herbert’s 50th birthday.
So many students came along, with their families too, picnics were had, games were played, food & drink and much merriment was had by all.
We love the club, the sensei and the community that has been built within the club and that goes beyond the dojo.
