We persuaded JKA England Squad member and Westminster student Sensei Abigail Good to take our two Thursday classes recently. Junior and senior grades attended, including young Gregory one of our very newest students.

Having battled her way up the M25, Abigail proceeded to give us some specific training across basics, kumite and kata to complement Sensei Miranda’s instruction. Abigail spent 18 months in Japan so her skill and knowledge is really valuable and on point – ideal just ahead of the JKAE Nationals and our July grading.

Both sessions were full on but Abigail managed to squeeze in a lot of laughter alongside the light bulb (or ‘I didn’t know I was doing that’) moments. And she promised to come back!
