TYGA  JUNIOR SUMMER OUTDOOR COURSE 2013

Wandsworth Common, Sunday 30th June

On Sunday 30th June Grandmaster Gary Wasniewski held the first open junior Summer outdoor course on Wandsworth Common, South London.  Nineteen students attended from Earlsfield, Greenford and Kensington clubs, supported by instructors Sensei Dev Nayak, Sensei Mukta Manro and Sensei Sam Haynes.  The sun shone down on one and all, as they practiced hard on their kata, self-defence and sparring techniques, working towards their next grading.  It was a wonderful opportunity to learn directly from the Grandmaster, whose spectacular sparring demonstration with each of the instructors amazed everyone, attracting a crowd of admiring spectators.

It was also great to see young people from across London coming together to share their passion for TYGA, growing in confidence and ability, proud of their effort and achievements.  At the end of the course the children took part in a sparring competition, showing strong TYGA spirit as well as many impressive winning techniques.  The Grandmaster kindly awarded all those present a certificate and medal, in recognition of their achievements on the day.  The Grandmaster agreed that this needed to be a regular event in the TYGA calendar.  We all look forward to seeing this course grow next year and wish to thank the Grandmaster for his invaluable support and guidance on the day.

TYGA KARATE MAKES ME FEEL …

Powerful, electric, very happy, confident, strong, safe, experienced, defensive, like fighting, special, glad, kickey, happy, strong and protected, proud, amazing, like getting a black belt, excellent and proud of myself, powerful and like I’m going to be a black belt soon, fab and great, energetic, like I’m a knight!

 I ENJOY TYGA KARATE BECAUSE ……

 It’s fun and hard working / you get belts! / it’s fun and you get to learn new things, we can fight people away / we’re strong / because the fighting is the best, it makes me feel brave because we learn stuff / you learn how to defend yourself and you get to learn lots of awesome TYGA moves!
