As we approach the end of 2018 we can now look back over our year at Tora.

During year we have seen a lot of students join us, both beginners and advanced, who wish to travel on their karate path in our dojo. Many have graded or re-graded and have moved through the ranks.

We have hosted our annual competition with our friends from Crouching Tiger, this was, as always, a hard but very enjoyable competition. You could see the effort that everyone put in to their training leading up to the day.

Our Christmas lunch took place at our usual venue. It was great to see everyone having so much fun and the food was excellent. We all had time to relax and talk over many subjects, (karate being a big theme).

Our first session in the New Year will be on Sunday 6th January 2019.

As usual, we would like to thank everyone who is involved with Tora, the instructors, students and our loyal support group, you are all so important and without you our dojo would not be as good as it is.

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
