Karate Hertfordshire – February Kata Training
Last week We had a 2 hour kata course. Kata is a series of karate movements put together in a flowing sequence, using blocks strikes and kicks. During February saw 60 Active Hertfordshire Karate students of all skill levels attending and after warming up, each group went through the kata for their own grade using a variety of different sequences working close eyed, using target pads and using different body parts to develop skills of balance distance and control. They worked as a whole group and pairs to understand the application of the movements. This requires concentration and co-operation which ultimately enhances the student’s understanding of the individual moves as well as the overall kata movements.
The next event is regional grading in April where all students across our many clubs in Hertfordshire are invited to upgrade to. Ext belt .
This involves learning a syllabus, regular attendance and for higher grades completion of researched and written assignments.
