Clevedon Karate Kai

A Special Guest at Yatton

17 October 2016

We had a welcome visitor to training at Yatton this week. Exchange student Lennart Grosse, from the Ruhr area of Germany, is staying with John Watton and his family, and readily accepted the invitation to join John and Amelia for a session of karate. Lennart is a kickboxer, so was at home with many of the punching and kicking techniques, but he had a go at kata as well, and did extremely well for someone who had never done a kata before in his life. The whole class joined in to add to the international flavour by counting off repeated techniques in Spanish, French, and Gaelic as well as the usual English and Japanese.
