This Saturday is the annual Freshers Fayre at WInchester University.
This is a great opportunity for all students (new and old) to check out what WInchester SU has to offer.
We will be manning a stand, so pop along to see us, say Hi, and have a chat – yo never know we may even persuade you to join us at a training session.
Congratulations to all who graded.

Grading for Purple and Blue Belt at Swindon

- Alan Chappell
- Hannah Hawker Blue Belt
- Rowan Lonsdale Blue Belt
In addition another 2 Blue Belts (London Dojo) and 5 Green Belts (Thatcham & Keele Dojo’s) were awarded.
Congratulations to all taking part.
The academic year 2012/2013 has got off to a great start, with enthusiastic new faces and also the return of the good folks from last year – all fit and healthy and motivated to train hard.
The new venue (Dance Studio) is working out well, with the sprung floor, making landing a ‘softer’ experience and the mirrored wall helping to give a brighter training environment. Oh and the acoustics are much better too.
Looking forward to the next few sessions 🙂

Earlier on in the year, we let you know that there would be a new set of Saturday training dates published for the Basingstoke Dojo and we finally have them. This year there will be sessions taught by Senseis Neil, Rich, Jimmy and Natalie in addition to the fight-club sessions and such from Stu and Luke. The first of these sessions will be held on Sat March 24th and will be taught by Neil.
Our aim is to focus on different topics in each of these Saturday sessions, so that they complement your regular mid-week training. If you have a particular area you would like covered feel free to ask (we may not decide to cover it but you may as well ask! 😉 ). Neil will send out details of his session soon.
Here are a list of all the booked Saturdays for this year to put in your diaries:
19th May – National training event at Basingstoke 12pm start.
3rd/4th Nov – Nationals, Bedford Uni.
As always the sessions are open to Southern clubs – Thatcham, Winchester, etc.. The more, the merrier!
