Kodomo no hi...

...or children's day as it is celebrated in Japan on 5th May every year. For the occasion, the juniors put on a demo in the form of a team competition for their parents. In exchange, the parents baked cake, what a great deal!
As ever, the juniors were super focussed and demonstrated a new skill they've been learning recently: how to encourage each other. They continued to demonstrate the "how to move on from when we make mistake" skill, another great technique to use inside and outside the dojo...
The weather was balmy and we had cake outside.
Thank you juniors, thank you parents!

Congratulations to Abdullah...

...who graded to junior 2nd dan at the adult grading. Great technique, great composure, fantastic attitude. Well done!
