A great night of training lots of energy and effort from everyone. Cardio on the pads, lots of Control & Restraint, Stick and lots of fun! What more can you ask for on a Thursday evening in North London. lots of new people who are training hard and progressing very well and to top it off I awarded Sensei Rick Bates his 3rd Dan at the Edgware Dojo tonight, my student of 16 years and head of the Hammersmith Hakudakan Dojo. Requested by John Griffiths and supported fully by me. Well done Rick, well deserved.
