Annual Forest Workshop 2007
When: Sunday 27 May 2007, 9am - 4:30pm
The sun had barely risen as members and guest assembled. Many still
finishing off a steaming takeaway coffee or tea. In short order the
Sensei's gathered up groups of people and took them off for warm-up jogs
or stretches. As circulation began in waking bodies the members broke-up
into skill groups to be taken by a Black Belt who would allow them to
expand their techniques outside the confines of a training hall. The day
saw throws, kicks & strikes, locking techniques and weapons explored.
With occasional light drizzle no-one wanted to give up and as a result
gained training experience in determination and perseverance. With fruit
and a hot lunch to fuel the participants, the day was long but rewarding.
