Venue Open Day - 23rd July 2017
We had a club open day at North Manchester Family and Fitness Centre. A selection of our younger members came down to create a short demonstration of what we do.
Myself and Sensei Bentham, put together a few Karate drills that showcased our style, some self defence, a spot of sparring, some pad work, some take downs and a few other bits to music to lift the mood in the break.
We felt it went very well and although there could have been greater footfall coming up to watch us. The kids got involved and took part in everything we had planned.
We trust the venue were happy with what we put on and will all go towards getting more members in the club.
There are some photos here from the day.
