Another great day at the beach.
Sunday 7th July saw the 23rd annual Beach Training at Frinton. Over 40 students attended what is a fun filled day of training. The temperature was in the 30’s which made training in the sea all the more enjoyable!! The day started with a 5 mile run for seniors along the beach followed by 1000 technique warm up then the juniors joined in and kihon and kata were on the agenda. Lunch and team games followed…many forfeits were meted out by Shihan on latecomers and losing team captains. Shihan was very surprised that red belts can hold their breath for 7 minutes in the sea!! However, the shodans pretending to be aeroplanes was the highlight of the day matching any display by the Red Arrows!
Looking forward to next years beach training when we can do it all again…It really is a great family day out for our dojo.
