HARPENDEN JKA

Serious About Enjoying Ourselves

This is Harpenden JKA (and some of our friends) in action. You’ll find us in our dojo with Sensei Miranda and on courses with guest instructors. A lot of these shots are inspiring, some are instructive, many are really funny. All of them are worth a look.
Sensei Miranda and her instruction stick, ‘Burt’ (no we don’t know why she chose that name either). Works though because you can see exactly what she means.
Playing tag makes you move fast (when you can stop laughing of course).
“He was THIS TALL…”
Yes, we’re wondering what Harry and Kai are saying too!
This doesn’t look like it’s going to end well for Sensei Susie does it…
What looks like a weak move in many katas, isn’t. It’s a really effective block.
Sensei Miranda checking her class schedule. Or planning her escape.

We invited 4 other local JKA clubs to attend our Masterclass with Sensei Adel Ismail, 6th Dan. Held, at Hertfordshire Uni’s sports hall, you can see it was well attended by all grades.

Guest instructor, Sensei Bianca Webb, 4th Dan ‘taking on’ brothers Denis and Tim. (Karate students note the perfect positioning of her leading foot…)
Cyra laughing because that’s her brother on the end of her fist.
Speed training. Honest.
