Welcome back after the summer break everyone, we hope that you had a nice time and enjoyed the lovely hot weather.

However we were still training and didn't stop over the summer. Some students bravely attended most of the sessions in the heat and worked on their kata and on improving their technique.

As we approach another lovely season of the year, colorful autumn, we will increase the focus on those students who would like to grade by the end of the year. It is always nice to see students coming and training regardless of the colour of their belt.

Everyone however should bear in mind the importance of working hard and being prepared for their grading. We have now 3 months to the grading and this is the time when you can ask any of your instructors for help or explanation on a subject which is not clear to you.

You can check your syllabus on our website or ask Sensei Jiri for a laminated copy to help you with practicing techniques outside of our dojo.

Soon we will be introducing some new products with the Tora Karate logo and also very smart grading books for our juniors so look out for these!!

Keep working hard. Oss!
