We are now half way through what has been a busy year for us at Tora and we have seen many new members in joining us on their Karate journey.

We have also had the pleasure of watching members passing black belt gradings, some of who have been training with us for many years and congratulations go to:

Mike Lally 1st Dan

Kate Lally 1st Dan

Josie Lally 1st Dan

Ben Pethick 4th Dan

We will be holding kyu gradings in July and we will be notifying those who will be invited to grade soon.

Please remember that, although we make regular checks, it is your responsibility to make sure that your licence is in date. Also, remember to bring your gum shield and mitts to every session; without them you will not be allowed to take part in kumite drills, meaning you will miss out on sparring.
