Man, I’m really sad to have missed this, thanks to me not being able to be back in GB in time for the event after work.

Last Friday saw the official final training session of 2010 for the junior karateka at the Gordon’s Bay Funakoshi dojo, as they break up for the holiday period.

(Though the adult classes continue on a Monday and Wednesday evening of course!)

To change things up and end off on a bang, Sensei Birgitt decided to do something different for a change – an outdoors training session!

And where better to train outdoors in Gordon’s Bay than on our beautiful, pristine main beach?

Needless to say, it looks like it was loads of fun and a great way to close off the official 2010 Funakoshi calendar year for all the junior karateka! Once again, good work Gordon’s Bay Dojo! :)

If you've got to kick something, you may as well kick the sea!
